Billy goats have a reputation for being randy. Difficult to say quite how true this is, compared with any other animal - these days, at least, they're usually only kept for stud purposes, which might tend to bias one's view. Equally, I don't think the nannies come into oestrus any more frequently than sheep do, but never having kept sheep, I can't be sure about that. Anyhoo, the concept of randy billy-goats has good RW folklore antecedents.
