This animal, which the scholars have classified in the family of the so-called hoofed animals (first mention in the old Codex Bestiarius in the first millenium before the new age) is related to the sheep, which is better known in the north. Recent research shows that the goat seems to have evolved from these sheep in the south of Tirakan (a thesis that is highly controversial, especially among the religious scholars).
Goats are very modest and can be easily kept. In many areas they are considered the "cow of the common". In mountainous areas they are preferable to sheep because of their all-terrain ability. However, it sometimes happens that goat pastures are no longer usable after the grazing season and are not used again until the year after next.
The main products are cheese, meat and leather.
