Meet The Goat That Paints

ALBUQUERQUE, NM--Maybe they should re-name this artistic animal "Van Goat." Meet Bodie-- a 4-year-old goat from New Mexico. This is no ordinary goat, Bodie has a knack for painting and an impressive portfolio to prove it.

For the last several months, an employee at the Albuquerque Botanic Garden, where Bodie calls home, has been teaching her 4-legged friend how to paint.

 "To see a goat actually hold a paint brush in his mouth and paint and he has some accuracy with it and some talent. Yeah, that's unique," said  Zoo Manager Lynn Tupa. 

Bodie is known for his use of color and many of his paintings are starting to make money. Bodie's paintings are going for about $40 a piece at the New Mexico Biopark Society.
