Springbok Antelope (antidorcas marsupialis) -- Springbok are one of the most abundant antelope in South Africa and are one of the easiest game animals to farm.  They are raised for their meat, which is turned into a jerky known as "biltong."  Their hide has a white plume on the back that they extend during a type of jumping known as "pronking."
