Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest goat of all?

In the Lithuanian village of Ramygala, residents are determined to find out.

Seven goats competed in this year's beauty contest. Some came decked out in their best threads...others with fancy hats.

A delightful sight for these spectators. And the winner was....Marce! 

The goat has been the symbol of Ramygala since medieval times.

And these residents could think of no better way to honour its 645th birthday than with a good old-fashioned beauty pageant.
