You do know that a "Yard Goat" has nothing to do with farming or even the animal, right? A "Yard Goat" is a small train used in the yard to push cars around. That's why the original design had the goat wearing a conductors hat, and why the wordmark uses the old Springfield-Hartford-New Haven train line script. The team is supposed to be themed around trains but they forgot that and only focused on goats and the Whalers.
