Four Boys Riding Goats

This picture just tickled us.  It was taken in or around 1918 and shows four Australian boys and their (we think) pet goats.  Surprisingly, the boys are saddled up and ready to go.  Perhaps more surprisingly the goats don't seem to mind at all.

We thought we might open this up to a caption sompetition.  It's only because we have thought of a good one (or passing good).  The little one on the left (boy not goat) is saying I bet the Kelly Gang never had this problem.

Taken in the town of Isisford, Queensland. the photographer is unknown but the boys' names were recorded - they are Owen McVey, Walter Grant, James Grant and Carl Vaughan.

The names of the goats, however, are lost to time.
