Is there a animal / goat market in Bahla also?

We are going to visit the friday goat market of Nizwa in a few weeks. But on the internet I've also found some pictures of a thursday animal / goat market in Bahla. Because I can't find anymore information I would like to know if this market realy exists. If there is such market in Bahla and when and where does it takes place?

Thanks for your help, CeesTT

There is a animal market Bahla Thurs and Friday and Nizwa on Friday .

, which is a great place to visit. You need to come early to see the live auction. The sellers are walking in circle and show the goats, sheep’s, and cows to the buyers. You can also observe local Bedouin woman wearing traditional masks or man in traditional cloths.

Kishy75, thanks for your answer. We are already back from our trip to Oman. In Nizwa we have visited the goat market on Friday morning. We had to stand up early but it was worth it. We were at the market at 8.00 and that was fine. The goat market just started and was very crowded that day. In the beginning there were only a few tourists, after 9.00 there were many, which made it less attractive. At the end of the goat market they also had a cow market, which was less busy but also interesting to see.
