San Clemente Island Goat

  • Coat:
    The San Clemente Island goat is one of the rarest goat breeds in the world. Fine-boned and deer-like, they are sweet and intelligent animals. They were brought to the continental United States in the 1980s following an extermination program on San Clemente Island, located off the coast of California, where the goats were feral since 1875; now fewer than 500 of these beautiful goats remain breeding in the world as of the last census in 2010. While they have not typically been bred for their dairy characteristics, San Clementes have a very high butterfat content in their milk, and their docile nature makes for excellent milkers.
