The Goat Made it to DC!

Rob sends yesterday:

“Nothing to see, just some dude walking a goat on Wisconsin Ave. by Tenley Exxon earlier this eve… Yup.”

Earlier in the day he was spotted in Rockville.

Modern Farmer reported:

“According to his site, Wescott “felt God call him to walk across America,” a lonely task that takes months. Though perhaps a human companion would be the obvious choice, Wescott instead chose to make his way with the aid of a companion animal. His first thought was a dog, but the dog he’d picked out sustained an injury at a dog park and Wescott was advised to look elsewhere. So he looked to the goat.”
