Goat on a skateboard - level 2

Goat on a skateboard - level 2

20-09-2013 14:00

There's another "fun world record." This one was done by a goat.

The goat jumped on a skateboard and travelled an incredible 36 metres in just 25 seconds. It's the farthest a goat has ever travelled on a skateboard. Other goats must be proud.

The goat's happy owner says her goat is little bit proud, too. Sometimes, it acts like some kind of celebrity. However, nobody can deny the goat's skills. It showed its talent for a long time. It did funny things for its owner when it wanted a treat.

Difficult words: incredible (unbelievable), deny (say is not true), treat (little bit of good food).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
