Coat of Arms

[COA of Vinje] image by Tomislav Šipek, 03 November 2015

Blazon: På blå grunn ein sølv geitebukk. In English: Azure a billy goat argent.
Approved by the crown prince-regent's resolution of 16 November 1990.
The arms represent the sheep farming in the area.
Željko Heimer, 14 November 2015

A goat to represent sheep farming? I haven't seen what source this was in, but could you check whether it maybe said "goat farming" instead?
