Goats

The goat was one of the first animals to be domesticated by humans, and they have been used for their milk, their hair, their meat and their skins all over the world since neolithic times. Even their dung was useful, used for fuel! There are now over 300 different kinds of goat and many people around the world still depend on them for their livelihood.
