Paradise Valley Springs








Thar

 

At Paradise Valley Springs you can also meet the Thar (pronounced tar) - a Himalayan Mountain goat.  The males have big shaggy manes and can weigh up to 300 pounds.

Thar are alpine dwellers with specialized hooves so that they can negotiate sheer and dangerous rock faces with ease. Found wild in the Southern Alps of New Zealand they are not your average goat!
