While it is commonly believed that goats will eat anything even remotely edible, that is not the case. This belief in their broad appetite probably occurred due to their tendency to taste various items to see if they are edible. The children’s story “Three Billy Goats Gruff” tells the story of three brother goats trying to cross a bridge to graze in a field. Even that is not accurate as goats prefer other sources of food to grass. Perhaps due to their long history with humans, goats are often found in mythology and the most famous example is the mischievous Pan, the partial goat Greek god of nature.
