Capestrina Goats most likely originated on the Lepini,
Ausoni and Aurunci mountain (Italian provinces of Rome, Frosinone, Latina, -
Latium). Quite rarely Capestrine goat are bred, more often they are bred with
Ciociare, Monticelliane goats and hybrids.
Males are 93-94 cm high at the withers and weight 85kg;
females are 74-79 cm high and weight 46-53 kg. Their coat is black or seal
black, their limbs are often light colored and some of them have a sort of
pattern on their head. Both sexes have horns. They are mainly bred for kid
production, and some times for milk.
