And they prefer whatever the goat next to them is trying to anything else, even if they have rejected it themselves previously.
Hahahaha! Isn't that the truth! I'll never forget when I offered Cuzco and the cat a leftover hamburger, thinking Cuzco would eat the bun and the cat would eat the burger. Well, the cat wanted the burger, but Cuzco grabbed it. He ate the buns and tried to eat the burger, but it was too yucky for him, so he trampled it and stood on it, waving his horn menacingly at the poor pleading cat. He guarded that burger for over an hour before Phil and I decided to intervene.

Hmm... I've never heard of any garden tasties that aren't good for goats. Mine love peaches, but they don't get to have them unless they're the really hard kind that don't sweeten up properly. Because the good ones get gobbled up by me!

I thought squash, on the other hand, was only fit for goat food. I'd have to be starving before you'd get me to touch that stuff! :p

Cuzco wouldn't touch anything except hay or grain until he was about three or four years old. At some point he developed a taste for carrots, but only if he could steal them from the bag in the tack room or from your pocket. If offered one, he would recoil in disgust as if being fed poison. Finally, he developed a taste for a certain brand of horse treat, but those are so hard I think they helped wear his teeth down, so we're going to avoid giving them to any more goats in the future.

It wasn't until Cuzco moved into our back yard where he was thoroughly spoiled that he developed a taste for a variety of junk food, leftovers, and scraps. Nibbles, on the other hand, has a natural affinity for all kinds of food and non-food alike. I have a feeling her milk is going to have a bouquet of very interesting flavors.
