Well, that makes sense! Here in the US, many a dish goes by a not entirely accurate name!

I think it depends on where you are and where the Spanish speaker is from and where they learned to speak. I can see how different slang can be used.

Some of the Craigslist adds for animals are written in both Spanish and English here, I will have to pay a little more attention to see what the popular wording is.

My husband learned Spanish in Costa Rica, where, I guess, it is very formally and "correctly" spoken. The Hispanic workers he works with, tease him about how he talks and which words he chooses for things.

On another note, when I dropped off one of my (goat) kids at the auction, one of the gentlemen noted "nice Chivos" so a mix of English and Spanish and a different word than Goathiker mentioned...

Lol this reminds me of when I went into a meat market in a very Hispanic town not far from me. I told him I wanted goat he asked if I was sure I said yes so he told me he had this leg, I asked him ok and it's goat correct, he told me it was a cross between a goat and a sheep. I was like no it doesn't really work that way buddy but he assured me it was a cross between a goat and a sheep and all he had was one hind leg left. Yeah I didn't go for that one and let him keep his leg lol

In some countries, male goats are referred to as rams.

DH got home and he confirmed for me that there are 52 dialects of Latin American, some completely foreign to others. This is what created the pigeon language.

I saw an ad for mule goats. They were Alpine/ Nubian.
I also saw an ad for three goats I'd given someone. They looked pretty starved.

I see a lot of ads for Nubian/Boer crosses. Invariably the pics show airplane ears.

I'm sorry Goathiker. I see a lot of starved goats around here and it hurts me. But at least they weren't once mine...so far.
