Its a good place to stash a bit of food until you are ready to eat it! I love it when they do this ... I have seen them walk around for hours with a piece of hay dangling in their face, then all of a sudden they wiggle their head, the tongue comes out and they are munching it. They look at you like, yeah, I knew it was there all along. Duh, there was a reason I put it there. I have also seen another goat come along and munch the hay out of another one's mohair.
