Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. It's hardly news to hear about surfers in Orange County unless they happen to be goats. Nanny goat Goatee and billy goat Pismo are stopping beachgoers in their tracks at San Onofre State Beach.

A video shows the two goats riding tandem, though so far they haven't been seen hanging ten or two hooves. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
