So, according to one of the far-too-many idiom dictionaries online, “get your goat” means to irritate someone; to annoy and arouse someone to anger. So my question then is simple: WHAT IS THE OPPOSITE OF THAT? My answer is kind of simple, too.
This is not getting my goat, it is making me want to get a goat.
As best I can tell there is no practical reason that these goats are doing what they are doing. It’s not like the metal thing is the only way over a fence and there is a treat on the other side. They just seem to like to be up there. Bouncing about. Over and over. By all accounts, they are playing.
