Billy Goat Hanging on Side of Road Outside Alba, Italy

Check out our food blog,


This cute HUGE goat was literally caged up in the old, small farmhouse literally on the side of a small country road outside of Alba, Italy (Piemonte). We were driving pretty fast around these winding roads and a minute after we passed this cutie, I made my husband pull over and turn around b/c I thought I was going NUTS. It was as if I was having some sort of acid trip and I thought I may have hallucinated seeing this goat. But, no... my wine hangover from lunch didn't create this image. There he was!! So cute. And you are right... he is smiling! HE did want to eat, I'm sure (don't they always?), but we didn't have any food w/ us and there was no place to pull off the road w/o falling down a cliff!
