Goats & Kids
Young goats are aptly named kids as they have many qualities similar to human children. They are energetic, bouncy, and mischievous (always pushing their luck!). They are inquisitive escape artists and have a habit of exploring with their mouths! A goat has an IQ of 60! If you ever consider keeping a goat as a pet you need to have good fences and good neighbours as you could be seeing a lot of them!
Goats & Kids
We have 7 different breeds of goat here at Farmer Palmer’s: Boer, Golden Guernsey, Anglo-Nubian, Angora, Bagots, Ganglo-Nubian, and Pygmy. Do you know which is which? Ask our team when you arrive at the park and they will tell you all about them!
Farmer Palmer says...
• A male goat is called a billy. A female goat is a nanny and a baby is a kid.
• They make a baaa bleating sound.
• They all have different markings, can you see the differences?
• Goats like to live in herds (with other goats).
• Goats will not eat dirty or old food.
