The boys and I were on our usual walkabout and black audi car pulled over to side of the road in front of us. This was not the usual Idaho pickup truck but a shiny sporty black maufia looking car. The man gets out of the car and proceeds to ask all the usual questions about the breed of the goats. I state they are Oberhasli and they state "Oh what?" At least he was sensitive to fact that "you probably get these questions all the time". This man had recently done a week long trip in the Beartooth range in MT above Yellowstone. He said he was through with horses. He then stated my boys "would make great packgoats, you know goats are the perfect answer." I did not tell him they were packgoats. Usually I do not mention packgoats until I'm relatively sure the person I'm talking to knows what a goat is. This is the first person in 3 years that pulled over and knew the word packgoat. Packgoats, the perfect answer, the word is spreading.
