Goats on a Roof

06 Nov

IMG_0034.JPG No my friends.  You did not read that wrong – Goats on a Roof is a real place – snorts.  I can say for one time that it doesn’t say Pigs on a Roof – shivers.  If it did, mom would have me on a side show – double snorts.

This past weekend, mom/dad took a day trip to the mountains.  They have seen this place in Tiger, Georgia so many times in the past but have never stopped to check it out.  They decided to stop and that’s when the comedy started… well we are talking about my mom/dad.  There’s always comedy when those two go out unchaperoned.

First they pulled in and saw this sign to the left, “Old Farts Parking”.  Since mommy had daddy in the car, she parked there – HA!  Now just to show you that I’m serious about this actually being an establishment, I’m going to link their web page here.  Check it out – then you will know I’m telling you the truth.


Now you are probably asking yourself, “Self, why are there goats on the roof?”  And I’m glad you are talking to yourself and wondering… and that you are not getting answers because then that would be just scary.  Supposedly Rabun County’s goat whisperer Uncle Buck talked to the goats once upon a time.  They believe… come closer I don’t want to say it too loud… they are descendants of Aliens.  What?!  Really?!  Aliens?  Okay.  Sure… walks away slowly from the goats.

When you are at this business, you can even feed the alien goats some goat chow.  After buying some of course, you walk up some stairs where there is a little pulley system rigged up.  You put the goat chow in a bucket and then pull the pulley system until it gets to the other side of the building where the alien goats are waiting ever so patiently for their mother ship of the goat universe to come down (their words not mine – snorts).  The bucket dips and the goats get their food.  Yay!  Something to keep them occupied until the next “mother ship” makes it back.

IMG_0056.JPGNow, it’s a neat place to go and visit.  Mom even got to try some delicious food that you just won’t believe until you see the pictures.  The pictures will be on her blog here today as well.  Good tag team today between me and mom huh?

Now here’s something that is crazy.  Mommy snapped this picture to the left – notice the two goats on top of the building.  As soon as she finished, one of the goats fell off – WHAT!?  I’m not sure if the other goat pushed it, it tried to bungee jump or an invisible alien came down to visit.  But the goat fell off the building onto the ground.  Now the place is called GOAT on the Roof.

Snorts.  No really the goat is fine.  He got up, brushed himself off, looked around and then started begging for more food.Goat is good.

      Mom said it was a very neat place to visit. They even had a store with home made furniture. She could have stayed in there for hours! XOXO – Bacon

      I’m not sure what really happened. Maybe he thought he had wings? Thankfully he was safe. XOXO – Bacon

    Gah! I’m not surprised that goat hit the dirt. That slanted roof is an accident waiting to happen! Goats on the roof??? Now I’ve heard everything! What’s next? Pigs in an elevator? Dogs on a school bus??

    Love and licks and the possibilities are endless,

      Pigs in an elevator. Ponders on this. This could be fun. Perhaps I need to check into this and see if I can make this happen. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Well it’s a cute idea but if the poor goats can fall like that – well – NOT SO CUTE!! I guess they get a lot of curious folks stopping by to check out the goats “up there”… have to wonder if they really enjoy being airborne or if they’d much rather be “four legs on SOLID ground” !!

    Hugs, Sammy

      I know cousin. The staff said, “That doesn’t happen very often.” So apparently it has happened before. Poor guy. Thankfully he was okay. All of the goats were really cute and friendly. XOXO – Bacon

    It is a natural tendency for goats to be up high – like mountain goats. We had a goat for many year – Grizalda was her name – he hated men and would do a full head butt if any came near her but he loved the girls. Her favorite place to be was on the roof of the storage shed…she was like a queen surveying her kingdom

      That is so very cool! These goats are the same. They loved it. I think they have grown accustomed to the visitors and the “feeding” of goat chow all day long. XOXO – Bacon

    But this raises an important question – where do young goats park?

    Hey, that’s cool….mom says we have a goats on the roof place on Vancouver Island but yours is way better Bacon. She says ours just has hay or wheat covering the roof and the roof is slightly peaked where yours has a wee house up there too.

      From what I understand listening to mom and dad talk, they stay up here there all of the time… Except when they are jumping off the roof. Snorts. It looks kind of fun not that I want to be a pig on a roof. I would rather be pig on the ground and chief executive of the Hotel Thompson. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh, we like goats and bet that is a fun place to visit. We are glad the goat that fell is okay. Very interesting post. Hugs and snout kisses

      Thanks my friend. Thankfully the goat was just fine. He jumped up, ate some treats and looked like he was ready to do it again. XOXO – Bacon
