Character Chaotic

Goat Flock (or simply Goats) is a non-totalistic Life-like cellular automaton resembling Flock and 2x2, although it takes a lot longer to settle.

Patterns

Like Flock, this rule has a lot of oscillators. However, Goat Flock oscillators tend to have very high periods.

Period 16, 20, 24 and 58 oscillators.

There is also a natural 2c/7 orthogonal spaceship:
