My 1 year old buck, Billie, seems to enjoy the water; every time I bring my horse out for his bath, Billie is baaing up a storm, so I let him out of his pen to wander the yard. Rather than explore his favorite spots for leaves he walks next to my horse and waits for the water... Long story short... Can goats swim? I've heard of people taking horses to swim, but I wonder if goats dig it too?

No, they love going. Just 3 things.
Don't use bell boots, splint boots, etc. The sand will tear up their legs under the boots.
Don't use neoprene cinches for the same reason. They will get cinch gall.
Your goat will eat weird things down there. Just look away, it's all good for him.
Have fun!!!
