Goats are naturally curious and love to climb on any random object they can find. But it’s not just that they are curious creatures — most breeds of goats originate from the climates that are naturally hilly or have many mountains. Many breeds, such as the LaMancha, were bred specifically for mountain uses. Their tiny ears allow them to be used in high mountain climbs as pack animals without the fear of frostbite.
“Did you know” will appear every Monday through December to celebrate a fun goat fact in celebration of the publication of Raising Goats Naturally: A Complete Guide to Milk, Meat, and More.
