A Nigerian dwarf cross goat named “Happie” has reason to be just that after earning a Guinness World Record for … skateboarding?
Back in March, Happie established a new record category, “Farthest Distance Skateboarding by a Goat,” when she rode a board 118 feet in his home town of Fort Myers, Fla. The record-breaking ride took only 25 seconds, according to the New York Daily News. Happie’s owner, Melody Cooke, 18, recognized greatness in her goat from a young age.
“She figured out how to get on and then I was just like, ‘Whoa, this is amazing,’” Cooke told KSN-TV. “My goat can skateboard, let me see how far I can go with this.” But skateboarding wasn’t Happie’s first sport. Last year, she tried jumping on a bicycle Cooke was riding near her home, and she decided to teach the goat to ride on a skateboard. Happie enjoyed it so much that Cooke’s mother encouraged Melody to try and get her goat in the record books.
