During April, I'll be posting daily in the A-Z Blogging Challenge
My theme is the Hunzas
Today is G....... for Goats
Goats provide a vital food source for the Hunza People. Goats are sure-footed animals and lend well to the steep rocky mountains. Not being picky eaters, they are browsers and sample a little of this, a little of that as they walk along a mountain incline.
The goats pictured above are angora goats . Their wool can be spun into a strong, warm yarn that is marvelous for knitting caps and mittens for a cold mountain climate.
The goat milk is made into yoghurt and butter or just served as a drink with their meals. Goat milk is high in silica and makes glorious shiny hair and strong bones and teeth.
Every Hunza family is fortunate to have a small herd of goats.
Below is a short video of Hunza kids playing with a wild Ibex goat.
