A goad is a sharp pointed stick, used for driving large beasts such as elephants or oxen. There are two types of goad found in Society heraldry; the better documented form, the elephant goad (the dexter charge in the illustration), is an Indian artifact, being a traditional attribute of the god Ganesha. The Society default for both types of goad is palewise, point to chief.
