The first edition of this unusual “bataille” was held in 1981, the year when some young breeders, true goat lovers, an animal which is actually quite combative, decided after their autumn descent from the mountain pastures, to hold an exhibition of the best animals owned by local breeders, combined with a competition between the same goats.
Initially grouped in one category, and then due to a clear inequality between the varying strengths on the field, the goats were divided into three categories: the 1st over 65 kg, the second up to 65 kg and the third for the “bime” or kids under two years old.
The fight order takes place by drawing lots, the competition starts around one and continues until the evening. The fight lasts until one of the challengers (two on two) gives up and moves away, after it is eliminated from the competition. Thus the winner is the goat who has beaten the greatest number of challengers. The winners are awarded “tchambis”, collars made of maple and walnut, and inlaid by hand with the traditional bell, plus eight prizes for each category.
