Learn how to draw a goat decorated with a bell and chewing flowers. This one is easy so students of all ages can enjoy drawing her.
Drawing a goat can be easy if some of their familiar features can be simplified. A bean shaped body, flat head with horns, and skinny legs will do the trick. Adding a collar with a bell and a couple of flowers make him or her look like they kind of just stepped out of a storybook.
If you are not too familiar with goats, here are a few fun facts:
- Female goats are called ‘does’. Male goats are called ‘bucks’. Young goats are called ‘kids‘.
- The domestic goat has cloven hooves, a long beard on its chin, a short and upward-turned tail and horns that grow upward from the head instead of twisting to the sides like those of sheep. Their hair is straight with a woolly undercoat during winter.
- Goats were the first animal to be domesticated, according to many historians.
- Goats are browsing animals – their diet Includes fresh or dried grasses, foliage of trees, shrubs, bushes, and various other plants.
