Year of the Goat, Indonesia

It's Year of the Sheep/Goat this year. I'm trying to collect these stamps from different countries again and have a pretty reasonable collection already. This one is from dear Shinta in Indonesia.

It seems like this year is the Year of Goat rather than Sheep in a lot of countries. I seem to remember someone saying this is because a goat is a higher status animal...??

I love the special cancellations! I wish you could get them in England, too, when sending regular postcards/letters, but it seems like you have to do some special arrangements to get them..?
