    Default Mt Goats and cows...

    you hear that goats are bovine, but they sure don't look it. my kid had one of the mt goat rubber toys and the dog got ahold of it and chewed it a bit, so i took my dremmel and smoothed it out where the dog had chewed and it come out looking like this....maybe i'm the only one that thought it was interesting...

    Default now you tell me

    Great now I guess I have to cancel my goat hunt and go into palmer and hunt some Holsteins. Hey think of it this way, the horns are bigger and the land they live on is a lot less steep.

    Talking right and wrong

    Maybe we're both right.

    I took this off a website.

    The mountain goats really belong to the antelope family and are not really goats at all! They are most closely related to antelopes in Asia and the European Alps. The mountain goat belongs to the family Bovidae and are classified as Oreamnos americanus.

    Brwnbr, winters must be long up there, eh? I think you have too much time on your hands.

    Mountain goats and domestic cows are both in the Family Bovidae, but cows are in the subfamily Bovinae and mountain goats are in the subfamily Caprinae.

    Around my family they both are dinner. Hee Hee

    They are bovids. Since I wasn't sure myself (zoology major) I thought I would dig up the correct answer. Here it is:
    Kingdom: Animalia
    Phylum: Chordata
    Subphylum: Vertebrata
    Class: Mammalia
    Order: Artiodactyla
    Family: Bovidae
    Subfamily: Caprinae
    Genus: Oreamnos
    Species: Oreamnos americanus

    Brwnbr, that ain"t no goat, or cow its a bald Dall sheep! I think its an alpha male!!! Look to see this species become more common, as the sheep stare at the tundra tucks their horns fall off. Bill
