18 February 2018. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This… Horns and Hoofs: Goat is Man’s Best Friend



Having a pet goat can be just as much fun as having a pet dog as the story of Jack Barrett, a football fan from Burnley in England, shows. They even hang out together in a local pub. Barrett, 40, loves spending time at the Angel Inn with his goat Eric, whom he named in honour of Eric Cantona, the legendary Man United forward. The owner says his pet friend enjoys being around people. Eric the goat is also familiar with fashion… his owner dresses him up before going out. Barrett jokes his goat leads a healthy lifestyle despite his regular appearances in the pub, having no alcohol, and only crisps as treats. Barrett, the father of two kids, said to the Mirror:

He only ever has water. I wouldn’t give my child beer, so why would I give it to my goat? He absolutely loves Quavers.

21 August 2010. Sergei Yolkin’s World: The Devil’s Trade Fair, or the “Goat Festival”

The Devil’s Trade Fair, or the “Goat Festival”

Sergei Yolkin



Every year, the residents of Killorglin in County Kerry in Ireland celebrate the traditional Puck Fair “Goat Festival” from 10 to 12 August. There are many legends about the origins of the Fair. The most widespread tells the story of a goat that was frightened upon seeing Scandinavian invaders. The scared creature rushed towards Killorglin, and when the villagers saw its agitated appearance upon its arrival, it alerted the inhabitants of the approaching danger and they immediately prepared to protect themselves and their livestock. Today, the fair is a family holiday when people meet with close friends and make new acquaintances. Indeed, during the festival, the Irish reconcile and make peace with those with who they are at loggerheads.
