ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland, May 12 (UPI) -- A Canadian farm owner says horse-riding goats are a common sight on her farm.

Angie Power's horse-riding pygmy goats were recently featured riding her Arabian horse in a video put out by Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism, CBC News reported.

"The goats like to always, of course, be close to the horse, and when she lies down, they lie down on her back," Power said. "And, of course, goats being goats -- you know, they're pretty sure-footed little things -- [the horse] gets up and most of the time they'll just stay on and go for a ride around the farm."

Power said people from the tourism department happened to be driving by her farm and see one of the goats on the horse.

"They thought it was remarkable -- they had never seen anything like it," she said. "So they asked could they come in and spend the day filming and they did, it was wonderful."

To get the goats down, the horse gives them a gentle jostle, Power said.
