Goat Contemplates Presidency

Goat Contemplates Presidency, 5×7, Oil on Canvas Panel

If you have been reading my blog or know me personally most of you know, I am a Canadian transplanted here in Oregon. Today, I learned some American history for this little painting, because of the painting title (which I thought was quite apt, for an adorable, kid overlord such as this) ​I thought I would do a little background research on goats and presidents. So I googled – Presidents that had goats. A website came up that listed all the pets had by Presidents. To my surprise, it turns out several had goats. Abraham Lincoln loved goats! he had two!

Fun fact, but not goat related, Thomas Jefferson had two Grizzly Bears given to him by Lewis and Clark which were kept on the White House lawn for some time. Yikes!!!
