    Why? Because that is how we say it!

    2. A goat's beard (a goat has a beard). Is this correct?
    If you are trying to use the possessive to talk about a beard which belongs to a goat, then yes, but context would dictate whether it is correct or not.
    See above. My amendments, and my responses, are in red.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
