Prof. Sherman's

Caprine Paradox...Herd of Educated Goats

 

Professor Sherman's Caprine Paradox," which consisted of six trained goats.  They were drilled to climb ladders, leap hurdles, walk atop rolling barrels and balls, jump through hoops, walk on their hind legs and knees, and balance on a seesaw.  Sadly, ten years later, Sherman would lose all his goats after they ate the Christmas decorations hanging in a Philadelphia theater.  Apparently laurel wreaths are one of the few organic materials that goats cannot digest.
