Goats live in the wild, but are also kept by people. Their hooves allow them to climb without slipping, which is one of their unique characteristics. Most goats are back, brown, or white. Some have spots or markings on them. Goats have horns and beards. They eat leaves, grass, grain, hay, and salt. People use goats for their milk and their meat. They can be friendly enough to keep as a pet! While male goats are called billy goats, females are called nannies and baby goats are called kids.
