A goat is a cloven-hooved animal with dense fur of various colors and a set of horns. They are best known for their goatee-like beards and back-bending horns, which occurs on both males and females. They are closely related to sheep but cannot generally produce viable offspring with them in reality.

In cartoons, goats are often shown eating any object they can (much like ostriches). In reality, however, they are very fastitious eaters, even refusing to eat items that fall from their muzzles to the ground below. They are also frequently shown as using their horns to toss other creatures from behind. A famous case would be the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff in which the largest billy-goat throws a troll off a bridge.
