Goats on the Roof

Right on U.S. Highway 441 in Tiger, near Clayton, Georgia is  a crazy little attraction that goes by the name of Goats on the Roof. Here’s their sign:



Guess you gotta have a gimmick!


The goats hang out on the roof and can walk from one building to the next by means of this swinging bridge.

Kids of all ages feed the goats by means of various simple machines.





There is also an indoor, air-conditioned gem mine. There was lots of merchandise, which was much nicer stuff than you might expect. Think Cracker Barrel and then maybe take it up a few notches. The Amish-produced furniture was quite pricy and of beautiful quality. There was a selection of wines and local cheeses and a fudge shop. It was an interesting little place: newish and spotlessly clean.

As we were getting in the car to leave, we noticed a large rabbit in the parking lot. It looked too large to be a native rabbit, so I think it must be someone’s wandering pet.



He’s found a funky place, for sure.
