They have lyre-shaped horns that can be up to 4 feet (1.2 metres) long.
The hair on the goats is short and thick. It can be red or black, or greyish colours in between.
Females will weigh 110 to 130 pounds (50 to 60 kg); males 175 to 200 pounds (80 to 90 kg.)
The goats are protected today by an organization called the “Association de Défense des Caprins du Rove” (ADCR.)
Rove Goats could have been brought to France by Phoenicians.
They were bred over the millennia.
They almost disappeared in the 1970s, because they are not as productive in giving milk as other goats, only 130 to 160 US gallons (500 to 600 litres) per year.
