Goats are pretty much the G.O.A.T. These curious and playful animals were one of the first animals to be tamed by humans (they were first being herded 9,000 years ago), which might explain why goats can be taught their name and to come when called. How adorable! There’s definitely something super sweet about goats, right? No wonder we want to do goat yoga with them and dress them up in cute outfits. We even like to laugh at goat puns and jokes. It’s almost as if these kids are like our kids — we just can’t get enough of them. So, in celebration of our furry friends, we decided to put together some G.O.A.T. goat coloring pages. They make a perfect DIY activity for you and your kids to enjoy together. They might even get you thinking of adopting a mini(goat) kid of your own as a pet, or, at least, maybe visiting one at a local farm sanctuary.

Speaking of farms, we’ve got a whole slew of fun farm-themed coloring pages! Once you’re done with these cute goats, you can move on over to our pig pages, cow pages, and horse pages.

Baby goats (kids) are pretty quick and alert as soon as they’re born. They’re known to stand and take their first steps within minutes after birth. Can you believe that energy?! Their mother recognizes each kid by its unique call and scent — not by sight. And if you’re wondering where baby goats get their name, well, it’s called “kidding” when a goat gives birth. It sounds like a joke, but we’re so serious.

If you’ve looked at a goat’s eyes, you may have noticed how distinct they are. That’s because goats’ pupils — like many hooved animals — are rectangular. This unique feature gives them vision for 320 to 340 degrees (compared to humans with 160 to 210) around them without having to move. No wonder they are thought to have excellent night vision. They can see everything!

Goats, being mountain animals, are very good at climbing. They can climb pretty much anything, from treetops to even dams. In fact, they’re extremely agile and are capable of jumping up to 12 feet! Because they are natural mountain climbers, they are foragers when it comes to food — not grazers. As herbivores, they like to reach up high to find the tastiest snacks, like moss and plants.
