I checked out a number of goat books from the library at once. This one had some fun original content compared to the others, (Ever wondered where the phrase "got his goat" came from?) and had some really awesome historical photos as well.
OK, so this one is not for the ordinary person but I owned a goat and needed the book. I thought it was quite handy; however, I was able to find a lot of the same information online. I had a Pygmy goat and named him Harley, Harley didn't like to walk on grass and he loved bread. You can't get that kind of information online or in a book. I had to learn that by trial and error.
