Pygmy goat


Pygmy Goats are believed to be some of the earliest domesticated animals and are highly sociable, enjoying being around people. They are compact animals, as their name would imply, with well-muscled bodies and pronounced beards, though these two youngsters have yet to produce much growth. The head and legs of the Pygmy Goat are short in comparison with their body size. They may be any colour, but the standard animal should have muzzle, forehead, eyes and ears lighter than the dark part of the body. Hoof are also normally darker than the main body coat colour, though the goats may be black. Female Pygmy Goats are called does, and males are called bucks.
