The Kempic goat is a beautiful breed that originated in the Isles of Scilly, off the coast of England. These goats are hardy, active, and friendly animals, who make excellent pets or show animals. They are a medium sized goat, with males reaching up to 175 cm (66 in) at the withers, while females usually stay slightly smaller.
Kempics have a long, straight face with a distinct set of horns that bend backwards, and a coat of wool that ranges from pure white to a creamy shade, sometimes with patches of darker or lighter colors. They have a stocky build, and generally come in two types: the standard Kempic and the “feral” Kempics.
The standard variety is bred for show purposes, while the “feral” variety is more wild and hardy. The feral Kempic is usually white with a black muzzle, legs, and markings on the body.
Kempics are very easy keepers, requiring minimal grooming and care. They are very hardy goats, resistant to common diseases, and capable of surviving in a wide variety of climates and environments.
Kempics are also very friendly and social animals, getting along well with both humans and other livestock. They can be taught to do a variety of tricks and are capable of learning commands.
Kempics are also known for their incredible milking abilities. While they are not as high producers as other dairy breeds, they produce a rich, creamy milk that is beloved by cheese makers.
Kempics are a good choice for those who want a beautiful, friendly, and hardy goat with a unique look. They make wonderful pets, companions, and can even be trained for show competitions. No matter what you choose to do with them, Kempics will always provide you with a lifetime of joy and entertainment.
