Why do goats have those little waddles that hang off their jaws and necks??? Do they serve a purpose?

Any goat can get them and they don't serve any purpose, just extra 'jewlery' as I call 'em...Lol! Some goats can have up to four of them, and the most common place is under the jaw on the neck, but they can get them in pretty funky places...I had a buck kid one year who had them under his ears...Lol!

Ohhh, neato, thanks guys. I had a little goat when I was like 6 or so, and I thought because she had the waddles that she was a boy, so I gave her to my sister because I wanted a girl goat and took her boy goat because I thought it was a girl, lol.
