Again, these are Alpine dairy goats, which look nothing at all like the native goats you see everywhere in Morocco. They're much bigger, have horns (both sexes), and a much lighter, smoother coat. And they produce a lot of milk, about 3 liters/day. After I mentioned that I would like to sample some of the milk sometime, one of the women responsible for looking after them insisted on immediately milking the 3 goats that are currently producing and sending me and Bjai home with a bottle. It was delicious, not nearly so heavy as straight cow's milk, and very sweet. White gold!

When I have a faster connection soon, I'll also post the rest of the pictures on my Flickr:
