Ugly Deer

We were pulling the horse trailer down a rain slicked road last night when I spotted reflecting eyes in the headlights. The girls braced and said, "Deer!" The truck locked and slid a little, but I wasn't going very fast. We stopped in time to catch a fat, short, and scruffy grey rear end darting off the road into a yard. Simultaneously, we hear "baaaaaaaaaaaaa".

"Man," I exclaimed to the girls, "that is one UGLY deer."

I made the girls get out (it was dark and they were reluctant) and go up to the nearby house to tell them their goat was loose. It was their neighbor's goat, and they knew it well as it had eaten all their flowers.
