Stiefelgeiss Goats is a meat
goat from the highlands of St. Gallen, Switzerland. Their population is
currently less than one thousand.
Both male and female
Stiefelgeiss goats have horns. Their coats range from a light greyish brown to
a dark reddish color. The animals are not excessively shaggy, but on the
animals' hind end, long beard hairs, called "Mänteli," grow much
longer and often are of a different color from the rest of the coat. Some
members of the breed display long, beard-like hairs on the chin.
