Goats were one of the earliest domesticates animals, and evidence of their domestication can be traced back as far as 10,000 years. They probably originated in Central Asia and the Mediterranean, but by the 1500s Spanish and Portuguese explorers were scattering goats across the globe. Goats were commonly kept on ships as a source of milk and meat, and there's documentation that goats were along on the Mayflower's journey to America.
