Goats & broos...

I'm very confused by the suggestion that Orlanthi don't herd goats because
they're too much like broos. I always thought the whole reason broos looked
like goats was *because* the Orlanthi herded goats (since the broos like
to sneak in and impregnate the herd animals for fun). If goats are impure
and the locals herd sheep, wouldn't the broos end up resembling sheep? (So
that sheep then become ritually impure, and so on.)

Maybe I'm just approaching this bass-ackwards, but it always made sense
that way to me. I don't remember the citation about goats (from the old
_Apple Lane_?), but I'll have a look and see if I'm just confused.
