Goats Around Town, Philippine Native

Beware, goats are addictive!

Did you notice that, since you became a goat raiser, you tend to immediately spot goats when they are around? And that during trips, when you see them at the roadside, they will instantly become an attraction? Indeed, goats bring happiness and it is therapeutic to see them happy too.

In the Philippines, goats that we commonly see on the streets are of native breed which dominate the goats population in the country. Unlike nubians, natives are stocky and small, weighing only 25 kilograms on the average when they mature. Below are some random pictures taken during our leisure drive around Davao.
