CELEBRATING outstanding sales this year, a Lautoka goat farmer decorated the family pet and trotted him through the Sugar City.

Saheed Khan said drought conditions in 2011 and Tropical Cyclone Evan in 2012 had set his business back but bumper sales this year had given him and his family more than one reason to smile.

"I decorated Kevin, who was named after a friend, to attract some attention and bring some Christmas cheer to Lautoka but mostly it was because I sold more than 60 goats this festive season," the 46-year-old Vitogo-Paipai resident said.
