Re: Welsh Goats

I adore goats! Especially the kids, the way they skip and jump, so cute!

They certainly are. And strong willed and clever, too.

Mine used to be able to open a bolt with their lips in seconds!

Excellent .....

I read that Bristol Zoo also introduced 4 Bagot goats, too. They are an ancient breed, introduced to England in the 14th century, and, since they were of no commercial value, they were confined to parkland. With the demise of large estates, herds vanished and are rarely found nowadays. Levens Hall in Cumbria has a large herd which visitors can encounter "in the wild".

Yes - very tender, very tasty! But it wasn't one I knew personally.

Actually it came as part of a wedding feast - didn't know what it was until afterwards.

They are gorgeous but some of those horns look lethal!
