Happie the goat lives with Melody Cooke and her family in Fort Myers, Florida, USA. There, the Nigerian dwarf cross has taken the opportunity to hone her gnarly skateboarding skills.

On 4 March 2012, she hopped on a board and travelled 36 m (118 ft), setting a record for the farthest distance skateboarding by a goat - a distance she covered in 25 seconds.

Happie could have gone farther during her attempt but she hit a parking barrier.

Recalling the day she first became aware of Happie's talent, Melody says: ‘She figured out how to get on and “woah” this is amazing the goat can skateboard. Let me see how far I can go with this’.

‘After she became a Guinness World Record skateboarder, she’s become a bit of a diva.’
