Do you speak goat?

Do you speak goat?

Goats are traditionally used to cross great distances together with humans. They can communicate with people just as well as horses and dogs. Do you speak their language?

Queen Mary University in London has conducted research into how goats communicate with humans. As with dogs and horses, eye contact appears to be very important. When goats can't solve a problem on their own, they turn to their handlers for help. 

As a test, the researchers hid some food that the goats could not reach. One handler was facing the goats, the other handler turned his back on them. The first handler was looked at longer, just like dogs asking for help. So when a goat looks at you, it wants to tell you something. Are you ready to listen?
