what's NOT on a goat's menu?

We received some really nice outdoor planters from someone and I'd like to put them at the end of our driveway. We have a goat who roams our property most of the time and I need to plant something in them he won't eat. The only type of foliage we have planted that he doesn't eat are spruce trees. Anyone have any ideas?

Goats will eat EVERYTHING... including stuff thats poison to them... mines will eat just about anything you give them.... but like fruit and berries, they dont like them.. but theyll like the stem.

Well they will eat EVERYTHING like ILMP said. I would say plant whatever you want and then put a cage, or somthing over it where the goat cannot eat through, adn the sun can get to
