New research has indicated that goats are intelligent animals. They live in complex social groups, and they are experts at obtaining the hard to reach foods in trees, they also live for a long time. Their long life means that they are better able to build up a repertoire of memories and skills than some short-lived animals. Despite the misconception that goats feast upon garbage, they are surprisingly picky eaters, and they seek out the right foods.
They are by no means stupid, but they are not as smart as dolphins, elephants, chimps, and others. Some goats are as emotionally intelligent as dogs. There is strong evidence that goats have complex communication directed at humans. Goats demonstrate the capability to form emotional bonds with people that mirror animals bred to be petted.

Sometimes, it is difficult to determine whether a certain animal is intelligent or not. For the most part, dogs are considered to be one of the most intelligent animals on the planet. However, goats are too. They may appear stupid and lazy, but they are quite intelligent. There are certain ways for scientists and experts in animals to determine whether they are intelligent or not.
These scientists study the goats and determine what they are doing and if they intended to do that. They may conduct tests to see if the goat can figure things out. For example, a scientist may put a treat in one cup and not in the other. After a while, the goat may figure out the cup that has the treat in it.
