Ten different breeds of goats can be found in Egypt. The Barki or Sahrawi is the smallest local breed of goat. The Zaraibi is father to the popular Anglo-Nubian goat bred for it's healthy milk. Other local breeds include the Sharkawi, Wahati, and Black Sinai. The Saidi and Egyptian Baladi goats – like the ones pictured here - however, are the most abundant.
