live on steep slopes with abundant rocks and scree above the forest line, at an altitude of 5000m above sea level, often in the mountain belt from 2500 to 4000 m. The goats graze on the Alpine or steppe meadows, in danger of disappearing in the rocks for the winter come down the slopes, sometimes in the forest belt, or go to the little snow slopes. On warm summer days, the goats rise with Leszek before dawn and sent to pasture. Hot hours of the day conducted under the eaves of rocks, on windy ridges of mountains or snowfields, renewing grazing in the evening. In winter often graze almost the whole day. a lot of goats die of starvation during slippery road conditions, and the snowy winters - from avalanches. Such a hard goat's life
