Summary, etc.: Goats have been domesticated for thousands of years. Goats are really gentle and quite cute! They make wonderful pets and can be really rewarding farm animals, too. Children usually love goats. Some goats are reared for milk and/or meat whilst others keep goats for fibre and fabric production. You may want to utilise these products for your family or even convert this hobby into a commercial venture. Some people keep goats simply as pets. Whatever your reasons for rearing goats are, it is important to understand when you are bringing home a pet goat that this animal needs special care and attention. If you are planning to bring a goat home, you must invest a lot of time doing your homework and research about this animal to make sure that you can take on this responsibility before you make a commitment.
