And a new study out of Queen Mary University in London says, if we just gave them a chance, goats could be our new best friends! The researchers say goats have the same capacity to bond with humans as puppies do – by looking into humans’ eyes. And the researchers say when there’s eye contact with a goat, the bonding hormone oxytocin is released in both the goat and the human. The behavior is called “directed gazing.” And domesticated horses do it, as well as dogs and goats.
