How can you tell the age of a goat? We tell these things with horses and such by teeth so is it the same for goats? I usually guesstimate from horn growth but thats ok until their horns stop growing or have been disbudded. I'm pertaining to pygmy's have that matters

Now, do not take that as 100%. Yes it is used as a general idea. I have a 8 year old doe that has only 4 adult teeth, and i have seen 4 year old goats still with their baby teeth. SO Yes those are very rare, but it does happen.
