THE WILD GOATS AND SHEEP OVERVIEW

OVERVIEW

Some goats and sheep in Caelereth are known to live in the wild only, which nobody managed to domesticate yet to use them for their own good or which nobody tried as of yet to domesticate for the one or the other reason. While these animals are in the minority, there's nevertheless a whole bunch of them.

Overview. The following wild sheep and goats have been recorded so far in the Compendium:

CAPRICUS GOAT, THE
The Capricus is categorized in the goat family and is known for its impulsive, unpredictable nature. They are fairly dangerous because they may attack with even the slightest disturbance. Because of this, most people leave them alone. Return to the top
 

HYNDE GOAT, THE
The Hynde is a massive animal that is considered a part of the goat family. They are sturdy and sure-footed animals covered with long gray to dark-gray hair, which forms a fringe to just below the knees. This hair is thick and coarse covering a soft woolly underfur giving them good protection from their environment. Return to the top
 

TANDALAN SHEEP, THE ("MOUNTAIN SHEEP")
The Wild Sheep which dwells on the mountain sides of the vast Tandala Highlands is a very important part of the highlands' foodchain and is exploited mainly by the Gob-Oc orcs and trolls of the region. It is a very strong kind of sheep with a strikingly-white fleece that can repel snow, sleet, driving rain and even can stop an arrow from hitting the beast due to its tight weaving. The Wild Sheep of the Tandalas is also called "Tandalan Sheep" or simply "Mountain Sheep".

YAH'NORK GOAT, THE ("EHEBION JUMPING SHEEP")
There are few creatures that are truly ill-tempered by nature but the Mosoly, who need no reason to display their contempt for all who cross their paths, must surely be said to be amongst them. Their reputation among those who farm them would suggest to a bystander some form of terrible demon or malicious ghoul, rather than a kind of sheep. That said, there are aspects of beauty in them those few who have ventured into the gloomy forests of Ehebion often cherish memories of watching these lightfooted, pale green animals hopping through the treetops, agile and strange. Even the few farmers who spend their lives with these unavoidably unfriendly animals will occasionally admit that there are elements of mystery and wonder hiding behind the bared teeth and baleful glare.
