: Thanks. I have since found this out through other sources. I still don't understand why a goat has a calming effect on horses. All they ever did to me was chew my clothes and eat my hair! How annoying! Also, why isn't this practice still widely used today?
It isn't certain that the practice was ever used. See link below.
