Murciana Goats were used in therndevelopment of the American LaMancha goat, originally bred in the 1930s by Mrs.rnEula Fay Frey of Glide, Oregon, in the United States. Also the long-isolatedrnferal goats of the Channel Islands, off the coast of California, such as thernSan Clemente Island goat and the Santa Catalina Island goat, are thought to berndescended from goats brought to the island by Spanish missionaries andrnsettlers, including La Blanca Celtiboras, La Castellana Extremenas, and laterrnthe more common dairy and meat goats of Spain, the Malaguenas and Murcianas.
