Which goat are you?

We love goats here at Anythink. We’ve hired them to mow our lawns, and you might have met one or two during special springtime programs. Though they might seem goofy, goats are highly intelligent animals, and each breed has distinct qualities. Which type of goat best fits your personality?

Goat Facts

  • Goats are actually fairly picky eaters. Since they don’t have hands, they use their sensitive lips to explore their world. That’s why they’re always using their mouths to investigate your clothes, shoes and hands.
  • Goats are thought to be one of the first, if not the first, animals domesticated by humans nearly 10,000 years ago. They have been used for milk, meat, skins and friendship.
  • Goats are extremely curious animals. Paired with their jumping and climbing skills, they are expert escape artists.
  • Goats have long, rectangular pupils, allowing them to see 320-340 degrees around their body. If humans had this ability, we could see someone standing just behind our ears without turning our heads.
