Coombs Goats On The Roof 2 Medium

Spotted: Goats on the Roof

While the goats grazing on the green roof of the Old Country Market in Coombs, BC, is not all that novel to residents, it is quite a sight to see for those who don’t expect it.

Old Country Market Coombs Goats on the Roof

I have gone to visit the goats many times and I always enjoy shopping at the market. What I didn’t know was who the goats were. I only saw a few the day that I went, but this little one put on the best display for my camera. I have figured out that this is “Uncle Benny”. Here are some stats about him from the website:

Name: Uncle Benny
Birthdate: March 1, 2005
Birthplace: Quesnel, BC, Canada
Gender: Male
Height: 3’4″
Residence: Roof of the Old Country Market
Children: None
Years on Roof: 4 years
Hobbies: Posing for pictures and keeping order on the roof

Thanks, Benny, for posing so well for the camera. Keep up the good work up there!

    How fun! I loved that place when we visited Vancouver Island. I want to go back! The pastries were amazing. I loved Vancouver Island and how you could drive from beach to mountain waterfall in a very short time. So beautiful.

    You’re right. It was quite a surprise to see that goat on the roof. Kinda funny, kinda sweet. I’ve heard about rooftop landscaping but talk about a goat maintaining it. Nice. He must be good at it since it doesn’t seem he’s ever slipped and fallen onto the patio or street below.

    That’s awesome! A great way to go green! I’ll have to visit there sometime.

    There is a store in Gatlinburg, Tennessee that has goats on the roof as well!
