Nicole Cosgrove

Happy, lively, and vocal are all words we could use to describe goats! Now, these wouldn’t be your average city pets, but for those rural folk, goats are often a common part of the family. They bring a certain laidback and loving vibe to any place they are spotted.

Bright-eyed newborns, turn into rambunctious and dare-devilish kids, and finally, grow into wise and all-knowing goats. With silly tufts of fur on their chins and intense betty eyes, you’ll occasionally find these mammals riding around on the backs of their fellow farm friends.
