Skooter reporting 07/13/12

A couple of goats named Goatee and Pismo are showing off California beachgoers with their surfing skills.

Dana McGregor, the goats' owner, says he trained his goats to surf because he loves to ride the waves and presumed they would like it, too.

The animals stood on surfboards and glided along waves Wednesday at San Onofre State Beach, as onlookers watched in astonishment.

Goatee, a nanny goat, and her billy goat, Pismo, even rode waves together. But after a few rides, Goatee swam to shore.

Goatee used to eat unwanted undergrowth on his property, McGregor said. He began taking the goat to the beach with him, eventually putting her on a surfboard. What about Pismo? He started putting Pismo on a board after the goat was born in March.
