Goats were amongst the first domesticated animals and have provided humans with milk, fur, leather, meat and building tools for centuries. As with any kind of animal they come in all shapes, colors, are used for various different products and are of different sizes, forms. Let’s take a look at the largest and weirdes goats in the world!
#The World’s Largest Goat Ever: Mostyn Moorcock
The Guinness World Record The world’s largest goat was a British Saanen named Mostyn Moorcock, owned by Pat Robinson of Ewyas Harold, Hereford & Worcester, UK. It reached a shoulder height of 111.7 cm (44 in) and an overall length of 167.6 cm (66 in). He only lived to be 4 years old, with the normal life span being closer to 15 years, but he reached an astonishing 400lbs! This was back in 1977 and he still holds the record today!
#Simba – the baby goat with the world’s longest ears
It is almost a fact that baby Goats are adorable, with their bouncy gaits and friendly personalities. But when one resembles a beloved cartoon character? The result is cute and record-setting. An adorable baby Nubian Goat named Simba may be the first Guinness World Record holder for the “longest ears on a goat.” The little goat’s ears measure 48 centimeters (nearly 19 inches) long. And, at less than a month old, Simba is still growing, meaning his ears may get even longer.
Born in Karachi, Pakistan, Simba has become a local celebrity due to his incredibly long, blond ears. They skim the ground as he frolics, and flutter in the breeze when he stands still. Simba’s owner, goat farmer Muhammad Hassan Narejo, was certainly surprised he first noticed his remarkable ear span, but is proud of his goat’s unique feature. Narejo even devised a set of soft pouches to tuck Simba’s ears into. Sort of like tying one’s hair back, the pouches tie around the goat’s neck and keep him from tripping over his ears as he runs and plays.
#Rasputin the Goat’s record-breaking horns help him get cool goat girlfriend
This is goat is Goat, as in the Greatest of All Time, when it comes to horn span. Rasputin currently resides in Lienz with his ‘girlfriend’, fellow black-necked goat Lily, and their son Lucky. Rasputin is a very nice goat, he never hurt anybody, he’s very careful.
He has the world’s largest horn spread for a living goat, as verified by Guinness World Records. The 8-year-old’s horns measure 53.23 in. from tip to pointy tip. To earn his Guinness Record status, Rasputin just beat out Uncle Sam the goat, who has a horn span of 52 in.
