Came across this quote from Walden by Henry David Thoreau:

At the Washington County Fair last week, I spent some time in the goat and sheep tent. I loved the goats and kids and young people. They seem such a match, full of humor and mischief, friendly and talkative…
On Monday evening, I watched the young people practise showing thier goats.
And getting their goats ready to show.
At the end of fair week, there are goat games! Hilarious fun to watch.
First up was the sack race.
Next up was dressing up your goat and racing through the course without loosing any of the clothes your goat was wearing.
The onlookers were taking the games quite seriously
And then there was pie eating while blindfolded and holding onto your goat!
everyone seemed to be having a great time.
now onto fall…
