Did ‘ya know? Goats climb trees!

Rate this post

I came upon this video over the weekend…goats hanging out in a tree! This actually isn’t surprising given their rock climbing abilities.

According to Treehugger.com, many goats climb trees to seek food. This is apparently common in Morocco, where food can be scarce and argan trees produce a fruit that is particularly appealing to goats. The video below is from Morocco.

This climbing ability is great for goats to find food, evade predators and move quickly. Their unique sense of balance and design of their hooves help them maneuver the most precarious spots. Watch:

Back years ago my Mom moved onto a lake lot that had a lot of trees near the waters edge. One of her friends told her Goats were the answer and they would eat all the low limbs and leaves.
My mom thought this is great we clear it off and we can fish she loved to fish. So her husband bought 6 goats in less than a week they cleared the waters edge and all the plants she had planted lol. Lost so many yard plants she didn’t fish for weeks reworking her yard. They would get up on things to get to the limbs. Thank you for this post it brought back memories of my mom she has been gone now for a while.

I certainly had no idea that goats could climb trees. Most interesting.
