On Saturday the 15th of September I found myself in the middle of the inaugural Goat Expo and Race day in Barcaldine.
I say "the middle" because half way through the day I found myself saddled up, on a mini "chariot" made out of mesh, steel and bicycle wheels, behind a goat.
I was in the "Olympic Nations of the World Sprint". The two positions up for grabs were South Africa and Scotland. Seeing as though I have a South African heritage, I took up the green jersey!
My advice was "say YA a lot" and "if you need to, pinch the goat's bum".
For those of you who have never seen a goat race, this point of view GoPro footage (attached to my chest), takes you through the motions - from the prep stage to the "GO"!
I was lucky enough to have thunder ghost ride me to victory, with only a few "YAS!"
