My Retirement Plan

Fainting Goats....what was that whole thing about natural selection I heard somewhere sometime?...oh yeah! 
That would be my entire life's education.   That and my common sense tell me these  tasty and small things should have been done-in centuries ago.
 Just watch.

I suppose their hilarity alone has extracted the mercy of predators.
Ironic, isn't it, that spontaneous immobilization would preserve species?  Then again, who wouldn't want to keep these guys around?

 I now envision happily-ever-after curled up on a chair with my significant-other watching our oh-so-cute flock of fainting goats silhouetted in the sunset, not yet aware of the mob of  grankids running their way.

  1. That's gotta be the most pathetic animal I've ever seen....
    How HAVE they not died off??
    I suppose I would own one just for the fun of it. Create the world record for the number of ways to startle your goat.
