    Well I was looking up photos recently of Ibex, and I realized just how regal they look. Then I wondered if anyone actually raises any kind of ibex? I searched pet ibex, etc but this clothing company kept coming up. Then just now I figured if anyone were to have ibex, it would be @spectrumranch , so I saw in their facebook album titled "Sheep & Goats" 1 photo titled "young ibex billy". I am just curious if anyone has ibex or goats that are mixed with ibex, or even if you know of any goat breeds that look similar to an ibex. Or even a sheep breed for that matter.

    Anything like this Alpine Ibex:

    Quote: from http://www.letsbewild.com/alpine-ibex-lac-blanc-chamonix-mont-blanc-france/ : I have entertained the idea of having some type of hoofstock animal someday, and so I am just curious of the more interesting things out there.


    Oh wow, edited to add that I found someone by searching for hoof stock in google instead of ibexes. These people have ibex: http://www.allaboutexotics.com/stock-your-ranch/j-m-wildlife/ Very interesting!

    Oh wow they look awesome! As far as your hoofstock go, which ones are your favorite? When I go to the zoo I always like the little deer. I am just into peafowl right now, but someday I might want other animals.
