Here's where 'old goats' hang out in some countries. :-) You've got to see it to believe it... and it's real.

OK - this wasn't a tough quiz, as it's an easy google.

In any case, these goats are in Argan trees that grow in the area around Marrakesh Morocco. The goats climb the trees to eat the nuts. Unfortunately or fortunately, the goats can't digest the seeds and they pass and end up in their poop.

Workers gather the goat poop and sort out these seeds, which are then processed into Argan oil, which is used in cosmetics and lotions. 

We visited a location that we saw all of this process on a visit to Morocco about 10 or 12 years ago. 

This would be a great for economic development and tourism in the CofK. It might be a little difficult hiring poop pickers though.
