Once there was a Mountain Goat who had vertigo. He never ventured out onto the cliffs always staying on the plateau.

One day he was asked to babysit the young mountain goats there on the plateau, and there they played all day.

Eventually come evening he hears a young mountain goat crying in the distance. He looks around for him and sees him stuck on a cliff.

Wow! He ran over there quickly. He forgot about his dizziness because it was more important to save the young mountain goat that he was taking care of.

From that day on he was also able to walk along the cliffs.
