Forget the Labradoodle, there’s a new four-legged friend that’s threatening to replace the pooch as Man’s Bestie!

The new loyal, intelligent animal on the block is the humble goat.

Despite the stereotypes, Goats aren’t just head-butting, T-shirt eating; and cross over troll-infested rivers kinda animals…

Dr Christian Nawroth   Goat's could rival dogs for the title of man's best friend, according to a new study that has found they are able to communicate with humans in much the same way as our canine companions. The researchers found goats alter the way they look at humans if they want help with a problem they cannot solve themselves

Goats are a lot smarter than we give them credit for.  Scientists have been studying them and were surprised to discover they have much better communication skills with humans than they expected.

Researchers found that goats communicated with people in an attempt to help them get to food – behaviour that has been noted in dogs, but wasn’t believed to occur in goats.
