Our family of pygmy goats are a type of dwarf goat originating from West Africa. They are hardy little animals and can live in almost any climate although they do like a cosy shed to shelter in during the cold winter months.
Pygmy goats are smaller than regular domesticated goats, but their general features are much the same with hooved feet and two small horns. Their coats can vary greatly in colour from caramel, grey, black and white. Pygmy goats are well known for climbing, and will hop up and down on anything they can find. In recent years, they have become popular household pets due to their friendliness and good-natured personalities.
