I enjoy your magazine every month and thought your readers would enjoy this photo of “the goatmobile.” It is from Henry Field’s Seed Sense, March 1946.
A caption describes the machine: “Mr. Z.B. Wiggs of Denton, Texas, and his gasoline- and tire-saving vehicle: a goatmobile, which is ‘horsepowered’ by goat power. Also note that there is a cage for a spare goat. On an uphill climb, he puts the other goat there and has a two-goat power machine.” FC
