Fun and games at the 'Goatalympics'


ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Calista Kountz, left, and Mikila Anderson arrive at the same time in a game of musical chairs with goats Saturday at the third annual Goatalympics, held at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe. A judge ruled neither could continue in the round, but both received ribbons, as did all participants. The Goatalympics for pet goats raises funds for New Moon Farm, a goat-rescue sanctuary in Arlington. There were 31 categories of competition, including foot races with leashed goats and judging of the longest ears, longest horns and biggest wattle. Calista's goat was a Nigerian dwarf, and Mikila's a Nubian Boer cross. Bandannas on some goats indicated they would be available for adoption at New Moon Farm.

Goats are very curious, sociable and smart says Ellen Felsenthal, founder of New Moon Farm goat rescue and sanctuary.

Lining up for a foot race, this little competitor has plenty to say at the third annual Goatalympics Saturday in Monroe.

Jamima sports two Goatalympics ribbons she just won. The 6-year-old Pygora doe is one of the goats available for adoption at New Moon Farm.
