Observed today...

as I was driving up Torrey Pines toward the college, through an older neighborhood of houses with actual yards, a billy goat.

A white billy goat, complete with horns, hooves, and a beard.

My jaw dropped, and it was a good thing there was no other traffic on the road at that time, or I might have caused a collision.

The weird thing was, the goat didn't appear to be restrained in any way, nor was the front yard completely fenced. It was just calmly grazing at the grass.

I wonder what the laws are regarding the keeping of barnyard animals?

Also seen today during my travels:

A bumper sticker reading:

Your kid may be an honor student, but your driving still sucks!

And a bumper sticker reading:

Excuse me, which circle of hell is this?

I drove by a cow in the front yard the other day. It's the city I work in... there are signs for "Se venden chivos" all over. So if you want your own goat, let me know. I can totally hook you up!

I'd have to keep it on the balcony...but thanks!

maybe that goat et up all the grass in its own yard and escaped to that other one. Maybe it's pissed its people off to the degree that they are hoping it will go play in the road...

I don't know, but I love speculating like this!
I drove down that same stretch of road three more times that day, but didn't see the goat. Too bad I didn't have my camera. :(
