Goat sign

According to the Chinese zodiac, 2015 is the year of the green wooden goat.

The goat or sheep is the eighth animal to heed Buddha’s call. It is believed that those born in a goat year are creative, intelligent, dependable and calm.

Goats like being in the company of a group, but prefer to stay on the sidelines. They have nurturing personalities that make them great caregivers.
