Bleating and Competing at the 2017 Goatalympics

The livestock was totally live at the Monroe competition.

The passé human Olympics has been done for centuries. But the annual Goatalympics, held in Monroe on the Evergreen State Fairgrounds and organized by the New Moon Farm Goat Rescue & Sanctuary, is a much fresher spin on mammalian sporting. Goats of all shapes, sizes, and athletic aptitudes went horned head-to-head in this year’s outing, competing in foot races and obstacle courses. Contestants also submitted to the scrutiny of the judges for physique-based awards like “longest beard,” “most spots,” and “widest goat.” But, we’ll let you be the judge.
