  1. Of course I had heard of goats before but never about this specific breed. It is quite the climber I can see and is very sure footed sitting on a ledge like this. I would be scared shitless sitting there myself looking down that height. Goats are quite the breed of animals, providing milk, skin, fur and so much more I am sure. This photo shows shows a superb speciment of the Markhor goat but why is it also called a screw horn goat. Horns I understand and see but screw? I mean this goat is not screwing up anything…
