A goatherd or a goat herder is a person who herds goats for a living. Similar to a shepherd who tends sheep for a living, the drover here herds goats. Shown here is a mountainous hut a typical living space for the goat herder. Selecting a place where large rocks have fallen, the goatherd places trunks of trees across the top, creating a roof. Over this he places boughs of green creating protection for his herd from rain or snow. A trait peculiar to a goat is their ability to foretell the approach of a storm. Herding a goat is much more difficult than herding sheep as, unlike sheep, goats do not have a herding instinct and each goat will tend to stray farther in search of better foliage and grass.
