The Damascus goat comes from the Middle East, especially around a place called Damascus in Syria. It's a special kind of goat with a mix of white and colored hairs on its coat, making it look speckled. People keep these goats for their meat and milk because they're good at living in hot and dry areas.

The goats have changed a bit over time to handle the tough weather in the Middle East. Some places outside the Middle East also have these goats because people like them for farming.
The Damascus goats are large in size, and are of the Nubian type. They are usually red or brown in color, but can also be seen in pied or grey color. They are usually long haired. They can be either horned or polled.
