WEIRD OBJECT FRIDAY





"If that looking glass gets broke, Mama's gonna buy you a billy goat"

This was as close as I could get. Actually, my husband and I are always looking for unusal canes. His step-mother collects them and she has all sorts-- rabbits, dogs, horses, Santas, but this is the only goat we have ever found.

If I end up needing a cane to walk when I'm old, I'm now thinking that it should be one with character. Like your goat.

Very unusual! Do you know any of the history behind the owner of the cane? Think how much fun the research on the owner would be! Truly a fun and interesting find.

Jen said...

Great introduction..lol
I agree you found an 'unusual' cane. It has a mystical look to it.

Ben said...

Makes you wonder what led someone, years ago, to say "I think I'll make a cane with a goat head on it today".

Looks like it should be used by a Hobbit! (Or maybe a troll under a bridge, since it's a billy goat!)
Very cool and full of character!
