Thank you Liz.

They are giving him away for free and the only reason that I was interested is the two unregistered does that I have instead of breeding them to a nigerian, it would have been nice to have a pygmy buck -

BUT here are the down sides with him -

- I don't think he is pure pygmy
- He was a bottle baby ( I don't particularly care for bottle babies)
- they had TWO goats die in October and don't know why and he has been by himself since then.
- botch job on his horns and scent glands are still there. they say he stinks BAD!
- he rears up to head butt humans.

So needless to say - I think there are more negatives then positives on this one.

hard to say. HIs coloring is pygmy and he does have a bit of pygmy look to him, looks like he needs more weight on him to really look more pygmy but he may have some nigerian in him because he looks a lot like Bandit in a way............ really hard to say.

It is always nice to get free things...........but you just got your whole herd tested and bringing in an unknown maybe a variable you don't want to mess with
