A goat, a sturdy, hoofed animal raised for its meat and milk. Depicted as a light brown, white, or multicored goat in full profile on all fours facing left, a scraggly beard, upright tail, and brown or yellow horns curving back.
Frequently used as a visual shorthand for the slang expression GOAT, or the Great of All Time, often said of athletes and in particular the late Kobe Bryant.
Often considered one of the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac. Also often used to represent ♑ Capricorn in the Western zodiac.
Apple, Google, and Samsung’s goats were previously white, as a Saanen goat. Facebook’s design previously featured only a goat face.
Goat was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
