About this product
- DescriptionIf you've never thought of goats as supermodels, the glamorous caprines on these pages will soon change your mind. Every one of these gorgeous pictures captures the natural poise of goats, as they take a stance, strike a pose, and gaze calmly down their Roman ses into the photographer's lens. Each portrait comes alongside a full description of the breed, its origins, current uses, and geographical spread. A succinct introduction looks at the history of the goat as a provider of skinsmeat, and dairy - and at its increasing modern role as pet and companion, too - while a section of reportage at the back of the book shows the behind-the-scenes story of the goats who modelled for this book. From the svelte lines and sophisticated, marbled coat of the Anglo Nubian and the neat stripes of the rare Bagot to the sweet 'n' furry little pygmy goats, these pictures will have you yearning to start your own real-life collection.
- Author BiographyFelicity Stockwell has kept goats for over 50 years, and for the last 20 years has written books on the subject of goat keeping and contributed to livestock publications. Against all odds, Felicity developed a herd of commercial goats during the UK's foot-and-mouth epidemic of 2001 and became a specialist goats' cheese maker, selling 17 regional varieties from her farm in Norfolk.
