    Hi! I'm new to the goat community. I recently got 2 pygmy little girls. We've had them for a few days now with no issues. Yesterday I noticed the smaller one (June) was starting to act kind of sluggish and had foam like bubbles coming out of her mouth. I asked around and someone mentioned that...
  2. Goat Frenzy
    Hey all! Just bought this little girl and was told she was Pygmy. From my minimal knowledge, pygmies don’t have blue eyes or as many markings. Maybe a Pygmy cross? I could totally be wrong, this is just from a quick google search, but I’m curious! What does she look like to you? I’m not too...
  3. Pack Goat Gear
    This is the halter my family had for years but never used and now we need to use it but I’m not sure how to use it because it doesn’t look like anything I’ve seen. It’s for Pygmy goats. One is a year one is 6 months and one is 7 months.
  4. Pack Goat Training
    We have 3 goats we’re taking with us cross country for our move. One is 7 months one is 8 months and one is a year. They’ve never had a halter or anything on them. We need to get them used to it and be able to get them to cooperate with us by the end of May. We need them trained so that we can...
  5. Goat Management
    I may or may not be picking up a milking doe today, and my other goats are between 8-13weeks. Is it okay to put them together, or should I be worried about the doe picking on the littler ones? We have no other adults, so I’m worried we have no other choice. Badly thought out on my part. The doe...
  6. Kidding Koral
    We have this goat who was a bottle baby. About 2-3 months ago she went into heat and was getting chased by the boys. We locked her in our yard as we felt she was to small to have kids. But now I think she’s pregnant but can’t tell. We don’t want her pregnant mainly because of being small and...
  7. Dairy Diaries
    Forgive the freak out, but I just discovered that my doe who gave birth to twins two days ago has a horrible case of mastitis. Her udder is mostly lumps and I barely got a half teaspoon of milk out. I tested the milk and sure enough, she has mastitis. She's a two year old Nigora/Pygmy and this...
  8. Waiting Room
    Hey y'all. Newbie here with my gals Coco and Zeppy. We're all new to this kidding thing. My girls are FF and Coco is due March 6-7, and Zeppy is due any time between March 6 & April 10. I think Zeppy is likely due between March 13 and 20th though based on heat signs and a messy rear end.
  9. Goat Management
    hey y’all, I’m a little new to these forums I’ve never posted before so bare with me. We have owned 2 Pygmy goats for over 6 years and last week we got two new Nigerian dwarf goats already both aged at 1 and 2 and one is the mother of the other. I was wondering if this is fine for both goats to...

    The Goat's Symptoms: AS OF 6/26/2019 MORNING: This goat is a female and is about 3-5 years old. She is a smaller build compared to our other pygmies. The very first thing I noticed a few years back was that her jaw wasn't normal. When the goat is facing towards you, you can see that the cheeks...

  12. Beginners Goat Raising
    Last year we got two pygmy goats (one doe and one wether). We are looking to get two new kids this spring. Our wether is smaller than the doe but he sometimes gets aggressive and headbutts her. She can protect herself but we are worried that the wether may hurt the kids. Are wethers good with...

    Update 2: Layla passed away on Monday 10/15. It turns out the initial veterinarian missed significant injuries to her head and spine and she was suffering a brain bleed these past few weeks. I am devastated and processing. Both she and DeeDee were such amazing souls and I feel responsible as a...
  14. Waiting Room
    I have raised goats for the past couple of years and I have never ran into this issue. I bought a goat from a lady who could no longer handle all the goats she had. Me and a friend purchased 6 goats that day. All of these girls ended up being pregnant and the lady didn't know their breeding...

  16. Goat Frenzy
    I've been debating this for a few days with my mom. Is a Nigerian dwarf or a Pygmy bigger? I've been going for nigi because a Pygmy is a meat goat, so it is stockier than a nigi... she's going for Pygmy, so who's correct? I've tried to look it up, but had no luck. Thanks Nigerian dwarf goat
