Goats are a diverse range of beautiful (and sometimes rare) animals. Billy or nanny goats are the source of many a children'sstory. Goats were taken into the human fold over 10,000 years ago.
From some of these animals, we obtain the fiber to createexquisite mohair and cashmere clothing. Others provide (extremely healthy) meat and milk; the latter being frequentlyturned into mouth-watering cheeses.
Extremely intelligent and curious, they are also experts at escaping from 'secure' fields.
And, they can make excellent pets. Along with photographs, this book offers information on some 37 breeds of goats from all around the world, including size and weight, hair type, and history.
