Franny is a wise Saanen goat and a supporting character in the film Racing Stripes. She is voiced by Whoopi Goldberg.
Franny is frequently seen alongside with Shetland Pony Tucker. She is an elderly Saanen goat who constantly encourages Stripes to pursue his dream and gives him many words of advice. When the animals eventually convince Nolan to allow Channing to ride Stripes, Stripes is discouraged, having just found out he's a zebra. After Stripes misbehaves towards Tucker, Franny reveals to Stripes that Tucker used used to help Nolan train racehorses, including Sir Trenton, proving Stripes that Tucker is more experienced with racing than he thought and encouraging him to begin training with Nolan and Channing. At the end, she and Tucker finally give Goose the pelican her approval and they pose for Stripes' victory photo.
