HISTORY:

The Pygmy Goat originated from West Africa and was called the Cameroon's or West African dwarf goat. They were exported from Africa to Zoos in Sweden & Germany. In 1959 the first documented shipment of pygmies were shipped from Sweden into the United States to the Rhue family in California and the Catskill Game Farm in New York.

The pygmy is a miniature goat ranging from 16 to 23 inches at their withers (shoulders). Because of their small compact size they are sought after for today's small homestead farms & petting zoos. Because of the traveling petting zoos for children's activities as well as therapeutic activities for nursing homes, they have become very popular. People want them for a backyard pet in addition to being originally known as a livestock animal. They are herding animals and thrive better in a group or at least have a pair. A male that has been wethered (neutered) is just as good as a female. They DO NOT smell like an intact male does. So much can be said about these funny, cute little goats, but here are a few:

1. You have to give it to them for entertainment. Watching a new born or young kid hop around the barnyard WILL make you smile within seconds. If it doesn't something is wrong with you : ) They are great therapy. And they love to show out and play games! Trust me! Kids love the kids! They are great for children because of the docile temperments and size. They are great projects for 4-H and FFA and easy to train.

2. The Does (a/k/a-nannies) are great producers of milk. The Bucks are known as Billies by some. The babies are called Kids.

3. They are GREAT browsers and are known as "little weed eaters". They can clear out a lot or area very quickly, which is of course "environmentally friendly". They are just plain happy to help out! They have become very popular for being a backyard pet and a companion with or instead of a dog because they will keep the weeds under control. Plus they entertain you along the way.

I encourage you to first check out the NPGA-Pygmy web site for valuable information, such as: a poisonous plant list, and proper care for them. I will give you a pamphlet of information that consist of everything you need to know about caring for them as well as full support..

I also suggest that you find out about the zoning in your area, because they are considered livestock.

Please remember, "All they need is Love". Because if you truly love them, you will take good care of them!
