Three-legged Goat Wins Goat Race
Peggy ruled the day.
A giant crowd watched as two-time goat race winner Dax fell and Peggy, the three-legged goat favoite from last year, won the Sly Fox goat race.
At the annual goat race held by Sly Fox Brewery in Kimbeton, the reigning winner lost, and the fan favorite, the three-legged Peggy, ruled the day.
"Goats do very well with three legs," said Colin Presby, who ran Peggy in the final. "I knew she had it in her."
Presby said he ran with Peggy around his home.
"I only have two legs," Presby said. "She has three. She always beat me."
The annual festival attracted thousands of people on a sunny, warm day. Kids huddled up to pet the contenders, and onlookers watched as the goats determined which would name the mai bock brewed by Sly Fox.
