Kate’s Blog: Goat Teeth

Goats only have teeth on the bottom of their mouths. Did you know that? ¬†Technically they have molars on the top in the very back, along with another set on the bottom. These are VERY powerful. One time, Ross stuck his fingers in Ryder’s mouth because he ate an earplug and got sliced in the finger. Lesson learned. Kids are born with teeth but loose them and grow their grown-up teeth. You can tell how old a goat is by how many adult teeth they have. Goats replace ¬†two baby teeth each year starting with the front teeth. Below is a picture of Sadie’s baby teeth. She is under a year old so her grown-up teeth haven’t come up yet.Goat Teeth

    No, I didn’t know that! How do they manage to eat all of those crazy things goats eat?…like blackberries? Thanks for this info, Kate! I love learning new things:)
