This problem becomes much more simple when you realise that the goat is the only one that must be kept seperate from the others at all times.  

this is an old puzzle but always a good one.  It has been added to one of our sticky topics for puzzles. 

And I've given it the green puzzle face.   

 

Thanks daisy :)

Take the goat across first

Come back and take the cabbage across.......take the goat back

Leave the goat and take the wolf over

Come back and take the goat over
