Fauna(Goats) Stamps from ARUBA

Stamp Name-Fauna' series(GOATS)
The Postal Service of Aruba has issued a new set of stamps in its 'Fauna' series. The stamps feature goats, one of the oldest domesticated species.
Farmers began keeping goats primarily for their milk and meat, but also for their dung, which was used as fuel, and their bones, hair, and sinew that were used for clothing, building, and tools. Historically, goat hide has been used to make water and wine bottles for traveling and for transporting wine to market. It has also been used to produce parchment.
Life expectancy for goats is between 15 and 18 years. A rare instance of a goat reaching the age of 24 has been reported.
