    A black goat and a white goat

    A black goat and a white goat

    A black goat and a white goat go over a bridge together. The bridge is over the stream. The black goat goes from this side to the other side/ the other. On the contrary, the white goat goes from the opposite side. The bridge is very small and narrow, only one of two goats can go through at the same time. Goats both donít yield each other, they fight each other and fall down stream.

    Please correct my mistakes.

    Re: A black goat and a white goat

    The first sentence is wrong. Perhaps:

    A black goat and a white goat approach a bridge from opposite directions.

    If you are going to use the second sentence it should not be the second sentence. It should be the first sentence. Perhaps:

    There is a bridge over a strean

    That's all for now.

    Stubborn, aren't you?


    Perhaps:

    There is a narrow bridge over a stream. There are two goats. One goat is white. The other is black. The white goat is on one side of the stream. The black goat is on the other side. They start across the bridge at the same time. They meet at about the middle of the bridge. Neither will let the other pass. They fight, and they fall into the stream.
