Spanish military took to the streets to parade in Madrid on Thursday, and the Spanish Legion brought along their mascot – a ceremonial goat.
The Spanish Legionnaires marched past King Felipe VI as part of annual celebrations for Hispanic day
The goat, whose name is not known, looked regal as it passed the king, looking out into the crowd.
The goat may have been a welcome distraction to people watching the parade, waiting for news following a referendum for Catalan independence, which the government declared illegal, on October 1.
This isn’t the only ceremonial goat in the world. For instance, the Royal Regiment of Wales ceremonial goat is called Llywelyn.
The royal family always help to choose the ceremonial goat, and chose Fusilier Llywelyn to take over in January 2016.

It looks like ceremonial goats have a similar uniform – including a super-cool hat.
