A fortune-telling billy goat has predicted that Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the USA.

Boots the goat does stunts normally tackled by performing dogs - and he has one trick up his sleeve that even the pooches won't attempt.

Animal trainer Sue Zacharias, 49, taught the three-year-old pedigree Golden Guernsey to predict the future of guests at their shows.

Boots, who lives on a farm near Jedburgh, Roxburghshire, correctly foresaw the result of the Brexit vote in June.

And the goat has now predicted that Hillary Clinton will finish ahead of Donald Trump in the US presidential race.

His prediction method is rather simple for a goat; he simply chooses from two pieces of paper with each answer on them.

Sue, a mum-of-two, said: "Boots is a popular goat as it is and he's already well known around the UK.

"We gave him two options to see who might become the next US President. He picked Clinton.

"He has been correct in the past, so I definitely think his prediction may be popular in America."

Sue is not surprised that Boots, who is part of her Les Amis D'onna equine stunt team, has become a celebrity thanks to his tricks.

She added: "I don't think there's another performing goat in the whole of Scotland, so he's very special."

After being rejected by his mum after he was born, Sue took care of him and they have been now working together for nearly three years.

He works alongside 14 horses, four dogs and sixteen members of staff to perform at outdoor events all over the UK.
