Famous Goats: Presidential Pets

Abraham Lincoln had 2 pet goats named Nanny & Nanko. Or at least his son Tad did. But since Mister President liked animals he plalyed with them too. Or at least the stories go... There is no photographic evidence that this is actually true, but there is p.e. (photographic evidence) that Benjamin Harrison had a pet goat named Whiskers in the White House - apparently he kept it around to amuse his grandchildren (I can see why). William Henry Harrison also had a pet goat while in the White House (although he only actually lived in the White House for 1 month before dying, we will still consider the goat having established residence there), but again, no p.e.
