Goat Herd Along Road Near Uum Sayhoun, Jordan

It is only a fifteen minute drive north from Petra to Siq al-Barid. Along the way you will pass a Bedouin village and perhaps some of their livestock out for a walk along the road. This herd was unattended but seemed to know their route home after grazing in the semi-desert landscape. Jordan has a population of over 800,000 goats. They are predominately raised by families as a source of milk and meat. 92% of the goats are an indigenous Black Baladi while the rest are Shami or a cross breed.
