Re: Our Azpigorri goats

Azpigorri are very beautiful, more than in the images.

Re: Our Azpigorri goats

:love: beautiful.  The little kid is so cheeky!  Are they dairy or meat or both?  Are they a local basque breed? I have never seen them before. 

Looks like your dog is enjoying the beach!  He has a good natured face.

Re: Our Azpigorri goats

Yes very neat goats lys, I don't think I have ever seen that breed here in Canada. The spanish name is very descriptive "under red". Gorria is one of the few Spanish words I know the meaning of along with tabs and tarus and a few other words that relate to euskal oiloak :)

I would love a few goats but I think I had better hold off on getting any more animals for awhile and let me husband get used to these one first :whistle:

Azpigorri is a basque meat breed, but I don't eat goats ;) Really, there aren't many Azpigorri, it's a breed in danger.
I like very much the goats. We also have 2 pigmy goats, but Azpigorris goats do the hard work.

It's also rare to see them here in Euskadi (Basque Country). We only have 5.

Azpigorri is a basque word. Well, Azpi means 'debajo' in Spanish/ 'under' in English. Gorri/Gorria is red (rojo in Spanish).

If you have a question about any word ask me.

Re: Our Azpigorri goats

Gorgeous! And how wonderful that we can ask you about Spanish names and terms! Sooo glad you are joining us and showing us your animals!  Could I ask you to post pictures of where you live?  I would love to see the landscape that these beautiful birds came from. I bet it is every bit as beautiful. :)

Re: Our Azpigorri goats

I agree with Susan, lys it is great to have you with us! I so wish it was easier to bring EOs from the basque country to Canada. But interpretation of words and pictures of Euskal oiiloak are still an amazing gift!

Could you tells us more about how common the different types of EO are in Euskadi? Do most farms have chickens? Might be a topic for a whole new thread!

Thank you. This gsd is my favorite. He is gorgeous but the best of him is his personality an character. He comes from german kennel 'Kirschental'. Truly german shepherd dogs. Last fall I bought a new puppy there, also very intelligent. In my opinion they breed the best gsd in the world.

Lepasoila Euskal Oiloak are very rare. Zilarrak and Gorriak are also rare. People usually have Marraduna, but not all farmers have Euskal Oiloa, many have industrial chicken, It's a pity.

it is sad for me to see how few people keep chickens anymore here in Canada. And an even smaller number keep heritage breed chickens. And even fewer yet have heritage breeds of chicken that are true to the bred standard. It sounds like it is similar in Spain.

But by spreading enjoyment and knowledge perhaps more people will begin to realize how interesting and rewarding breeds like the EO can be!
