  • goats were one of the first animals to be domesticated
  • a goat will eat about 2-4 pounds of hay per day
  • a goat will drink about 2-3 gallons of water per day!  of course that amount will depend on how much milk she is making

  • the life span of a goat is about that of a dog

Mountain goats can jump 12 feet (3.5 meters) in just
