Happy #WorldGoatDay! 🐐 Meet David the mascot, one of the most important members of the #FortHenry Guard! A white Saanen goat, he was presented to us by the St. David's Society of Toronto, to commemorate the services of the Royal Welch Fusiliers (formerly the 23rd Regiment of Foot), in garrison at Fort Henry from 1842-43. As the authorized regimental mascot of the "Royal Welch" is a goat, we have one too. The first being received in 1953.
Our current David is the 12th goat in service at #FortHenry featured here with Goat Major Lance Corporal Ferguson, and is referred to as “David XII”. When not at the Fort, he returns to a farm where he stays with his herd and during his stay with us, he has a companion by the name of Henrietta to keep him company.
Don't miss tonight's #SunsetCeremony presented by Ontario Power Generation! 💥 An action-packed show awaits with the #FortHenry Guard and filled with theatrical narrative and a grand finale!
