Man’s best friend, the dog was the first domesticated animal.
Around the Friburgo area there is limited pasture land. There are small patches of cattle grazing and the horse is still used in ranching. Unlike the western USA where the ranchers now use trucks and jeeps – here horses work along side the cowboy to keep track of the small herds.
Goat’s cheese anyone? Fresh Goat’s cheese is one of the best things in Brasil, but the goats are raised inside – I’ve never seen goats grazing out in a pasture. I imagine that they do too much damage to the grasses in this area of Brasil with the shallow root systems.
