goat is vuhutz (revisited)

vuhutz = goat (noun) (Some things Google found for "vuhutz": a rare term; user names; a gaming character name; occurs on a number of Chinese webpages; somewhat similar Hutz is an unusual last name)

Word derivation for "goat":
Basque = ahuntz, Finnish = vuohi
Miresua = vuhutz

My previous Miresua word for goat was hauvo, which was an alphabetic scramble. This new word better resembles both the Basque word and the Finnish word.

The word goat doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but it occurs three times in Through the Looking-Glass. Alice encounters a number of talking animals in Through the Looking-Glass.
A Goat, that was sitting next to the gentleman in white, shut his eyes and said in a loud voice, "She ought to know her way to the ticket-office, even if she doesn't know her alphabet!"
