The goat is still found in a wild state, and living among the mountains, where it climbs up the steep rocks, seeks for grass and other food, and where it cannot be hunted by men. The goat is about the size of the sheep, and is easily distinguished by its long beard. Goats are not so useful as sheep. Wild goats are hunted for their skins, which are used to cover trunks, and for other purposes. The flesh is not so good to eat as that of the sheep, except it to be the flesh of the young goat, which is called a kid. Goats are kept in a domestic state, principally for their kids, and the mil which they give. Goats-milk has been highly recommended in some diseases, as efficacious in effecting a cure.
