Nettlebank Pygmy Goats
Where did they originate from?

Pygmy goats are originally from Africa, they came to Britain many years ago. There are now many owners in Britain but there are fewer owners in Northern Ireland. These goats are smaller than other breeds of goats, they are a small compact goat, they have a rounded body, but everything is in proportion. Females measure 16-21 inches fully grown, males can be slightly bigger ranging from 16-22 inches.

Pygmy goats are not difficult to keep; they are clean and have different characters which you will discover after you have kept them. Pygmies are quite clever and need a companion in order for them not to get bored; they do like to play together.
