Goats are easier targets than horses.

Yes, of course. . Which is why it would make sense to use donkeys to ward off (scare away) Coyotes, but makes no sense whatsoever to use goats for this purpose. . Goats won't ward off Coyotes - instead, they will be an incentive for the Coyotes to come invade the fold. . Goats would be bait, not deterrent.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Googling around, it seems that if you keep goats you might well be advised to keep dogs or donkeys to look after them. The more aggressive goat varieties can be troublesome for humans and are reasonably capable of defending themselves up to a point and very capable of running away beyond that point ... but the goat is not a guard animal.


David.
Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.
