Text from the story:

There are many things about goats and sheep that are the same. There are also many differences. Like sheep, goats are plant-eating mammals with hooves. Also like sheep, goats like to be in groups. A group of goats is called a herd. Rather than eat several times a day, herds of goats "graze." They munch on grass, herbs, tree leaves, and other plants all day long! Unlike sheep, goats have fur under their chin that looks like a beard. They also have pointed black horns. Female goats are called "nannies" or "does," and males are "billies" or "bucks." Baby goats are called "kids."

Goats are very curious animals. They are also very smart and very friendly! Because they are so full of energy, many people think goats make fun pets. Much like humans, no two goats are alike. Because of this, goats are fun animals to watch, especially when they are playing. When kids play, they gallop and jump straight up into air (vertical jump).
