Why Do Goats Wag Their Tails?

Goats aren’t as expressive as a lot of other pets, and reading their emotions can be quite a challenge.

Let’s learn a bit about why goats wag their tails and what it could mean.

When Baby Goats Wag Their Tails

Baby goats wag their tails as a way to spread their scent around and let their mother know that they are part of the family.

When Adult Goats Wag Their Tails

When we are talking about baby goat vs. adult goat tail wagging, there’s certainly a difference. Adult goats no longer use tail wagging mainly as a way to identify themselves.

Goats can be great pets, and every year, more Americans are getting goats to have in the yard and even as indoor pets. They show emotions like dogs and can be a lot of fun to play with.
