I didn't want to say anything at first for fear of being called a bleeding heart, but I completely agree Jazzy. Not cool, not funny... heck, not humane.

They had no horse and got desperate. He is a pack goat and used to carry 100lbs, and the girls weigh what, 80lbs?
I did have to explain to them where to sit on him, that's why his back end went down, because they were sitting too far back.
If I knew this was going to cause such a big problem, I wouldn't have posted it.
He was in no stress and there was no harm done.

No, the back legs collapsed from the weight. I do not agree with them being used to pack around 100 lbs either!

As the owner of any animal you have the responsibility to always ensure its safety. Maybe it would have been better if you told them where to sit before they got on. I would think that if they ride horses they would have some knowledge on where to sit.

I still don't agree with a goat being ridden especially a small goat. They arent the load bearing animal that a horse is.

Don't worry JDI - im a bleeding heart too ;)

I never saw the video, but from what I hear, the goat could've been done a lot of harm. If you are desparate for a horse, then go find a horse to ride! I'm always wanting to ride horses, but I don't go jump on my beagle or my cat! That's ridiculous! I also agree with jazzyrider that if they rode horses, they should know where to sit.

Even if the goat used to be a pack goat, which I have never heard of, he probably hasn't carried that much weight in a while.

Think before you put an animal in danger.
