The Year of The Goat

Every goat owner, lover, enthusiast of course already knows and had proudly announced to all family and friends that 2015 is the year of the Goat. It is actually also known as the year of the sheep, but of course as goat owners we completely disregard that fact and have no shame about it. Sorry sheep owners, even though I do sheepishly admit that I think sheep are cute, but I do love my goats.

It will be the year of the Wooden Goat. The Goat is the eighth sign of the 12-year cycle of animals that appear in the Chinese zodiac which is related to the Chinese calendar. I thought it would be fun to compare the description of wood goat people to actual characteristics of goats. And here is what I found. No animals or humans have come to harm during my research by the way.
