Goats are a symbol of sure footedness, seeking new heights. The goat can symbolise what seems to be two extremes, gentleness and sensuality. They are associated with virility, fertility and boundless energy. The buck is seen as force of creative energy whereas the doe is feminine energy. The goat has similar associations with the gazelle and the antelope. Apart from the dog, goats are easiest to domesticate. Images of goats grazing or resting have been used as an idyllic norm in both Christian and Pagan imagery. Goats have been subject to some strange beliefs, including the ability to breathe through their horns or their ears!
