Photographic Proof That Goats Love Standing on Things

A little goat-on-goat action. Get your mind out of the gutter!

Whether it’s a hippo, motorcycle, or another goat, goats love, love, love to climb on whatever happens to be at hand, or hoof, rather.

It may hark back to their ancient alpine roots, to their penchant for nibbling the tastiest plant shoots and leaves no matter how high up, or to their desire to be top dog—er goat. Whatever the reason, enjoy these goats standing on things. Spoiler alert: there are no goats in trees in this article. For that, see this article.

It must be in their blood from day one. Even the youngsters can’t resist.
