montgomery goat


As we drove around Montgomery Texas a couple of days ago we happened upon a piece of local history.

 

This statue and placard are about a well loved goat!  Goat?  Doesn't everyone love them?

 

Having attempted to own two in the past, I am well aware that most are extremely hard headed, destructive and smelly!

 

None of those facts seemed to deter the citizens of Montgomery from taking this goat to raise.

 

There is lots of local color in this small town.  The parks and the antique district are worthy of lots of time.  That alone gives credence to the idea that long ago the residents would spend time caring for a homeless goat.

 

The originator of the Texas Flag was also a resident of Montgomery.  From this short study of the history of this tenured Texas town one could draw the conclusion that residents here celebrate their freedom to be different.

 

It has been our experience that there are few if any dull moments or citizens within the city of Montgomery.   It also could be construed that even old goats are welcome.

Jeanne and Ralph, thanks for sharing this colorful story about Montgomery and their goat, this must have been a well behaved goat, most goats that I have heard of would have found themselves invited to the town barbecue if allowed to run free for too long.
