Good Ol’ fashioned Goat fun
If you have been lucky enough to visit us at Raidis Estate, you will know we are passionate about our Goats. They help clean out our vineyards, are our mates and have prime position on our bottles of wine and branding.
Goats are funny and remarkable animals, often cheeky as hell but worth the work. Here are some fun goat facts that you may or may not know.
When a baby goat is being born, it's called 'kidding', and we are not kidding about that! You may know a baby goat is called a kid, but when the mum is giving birth, it's aptly named kidding.
If you are ever lucky enough to get up close and personal with a goat, you may or may not know that they have rectangle pupils. Freaky hey!
Goats have four stomachs! You might not be surprised to hear this one if you've known a goat to eat weird things, but their four-chambered stomach helps goats digest tough roughage like grass and hay.
Goats can have accents Just as human voices will vary in cadence and inflection by geographical region, a particular goat’s bleat will sound different from that of a goat in a different country.
Cashmere comes from goats. So if you are a cashmere fan, it's likely that your jumper or throw rug once had a home on a goat.
