"The goat population in Venezuela has been estimated in a million and a half heads".
Hmm I think most of these goats live by the roadside in Paraguana! It is often said, that there are more goats than people in this area, goatfarming being one of the most economic activities in the area. The goats I saw certainly seem to like living among the Cardones (desert bushes ) in this part of the world.
Maybe it is this fact that incites the StepMother when driving past groups of goats on the Punto Fijo roads, to become animated, hoot her horn and shout out 'Aha - there are my relatives !' and 'Look, my cousins - All of them!' - .
As I say, Venezuelans have a sense of humour ; )
For those that like goats : Goats in Venezuela even have a plant named after them, the 'Goats Foot Morning Glory' - A creeping plant with beautiful flowers.
