About Montecristo Goats
|Photo Source: Agraria.org|
Montecristo Goats, or the Goat of Montecristo, are spread across
the isle of Montecristo (Tuscany, Italy). They are not local but they are derived
from Roman goats of medieval times, then crossbred with domestic goats. They
have now grown wild and no longer applied for production.
They have typical wild coat shading from light brown to varied
reddish, bearing a pattern on the head and a dark dorsal line. They are short-haired
and have well developed horns in both sexes.
