Happy 2015 -- is it the year of the goat??

Greetings fellow followers and friends of all things capra. We are gearing up for a great year, with plenty more posts and hopefully a huge influx of mainstream goat articles. Already, I have spotted some goat-themed ads and goats appearing more and more often in mainstream media and gotten some great tips from fans. Keep it up!

For now, though, I have a question, which was brought up by this photograph and caption in this month's Country Living -- is it the year of the SHEEP (boo! no!) or is it the year of the GOAT? (Yaaa! Yeah!!!)

"2015 is the Year of the Sheep" -- yeah right

This is of course in reference to the Lunar or Chinese New Year, which happens Thursday, February 19, 2015 this year (it moves around due to the nature of the calendar it is based on, which is not the Gregorian calendar.)

Wikipedia states it is the Year of the Goat but elsewhere mentions it could be the Year of the Ram or the Year of the Sheep (shudder.)

So what do you think?
