An American goat that now calls Anguilla home, Billy fit right in from the moment he stepped "hoof" in Anguilla.
Anguilla does, after all, have a plentiful population of these darling animals!
Billy, the "house goat" at Tequila Sunrise Villa, has captured the hearts of many guests. We've received email after email in fact, asking for "more Billy!"
So, by popular demand, and without further ado, welcome to Billy's Corner... :-)
A "Billy Break"
The fun doesn't end with the life-sized Billy in Anguilla. Kids have been sending their drawings of Billy around the island to Robin and Joel, and they have been sending them a free mini-Billy plush back!
Take a look at the sweet drawings here!
To join in on the fun, simply scan your child's Billy drawing and send to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your child's first name, age and your mailing address. Or, fill in the form on this page.
When you first take in Anguilla's landscape, there's one thing you notice right away...
On the side of busy roads, inside round-abouts, frollicking in pastures... these adorable animals are everywhere. You would swear they are the national animal!
So, when Billy, an American-native (plush animal!) goat, was adopted by the Globus family (a gift from Joel Globus' sister Lynn), the owners of the luxurious Tequila Sunrise Villa, and moved to Anguilla in the mid-2000s all the way from New Jersey, he knew he was home.

Sunning with Billy
We fell in love with Billy during our stay at Tequila Sunrise Villa.
We walked to the beach together.
We took in the sun together.
He helped Heather, the kind housekeeper, prepare breakfast.
He even gave my Dad a hand with his work!
We aren't the only guests who have taken to Billy...

Kids love him, too...
