On holiday in the Sierra Nevada in Spain, my then girlfriend and I were hiking to the deserted ruin of an old castle, quite high on a mountain. The whole area was quite suggestive, the walk was long and to entertain her I made up a story, according to which the old ruin was haunted by the ghosts of old Spanish knights. I told the story too well for my own good, for when we finally arrived at the ruin and were about to enter it, we froze in horror at the sound of clanging metal and the stamping of many hoofs: we were almost ran over - by a flock of sheep with bells around their necks. They lived in the barn and my voice scared them, so they tried to escape through the same doorway we used to come in. In the few seconds it took me to realise what really happened an image of skeletons in armour riding spectral horses flashed through my mind. This is more than 20 years ago, but I'll never forget those few seconds of total terror...Any way I should post- Has anyone had any experience of GOATS
