    Three days and counting! :leap: :leap: :leap:

    And I love those wattle things too Liz...they feel so cute and squidgy. Am I right in thinking they're actually called toggles? And what purpose do they serve? Why is it that Tumnus has them but, judging by the pics, Teddy doesn't???

    no they are not Toggles but Wattles and any goat can get them just not every goat has them, they serve no purpose, just like color serves no purpose.

    and your Teddy is not a purebred Pygmy and since Tumnus is his sibling then I say they both have some other breed of goat in their pedigree.

    Since the Nigerian Dwarf hasn't been perfected greatly in the UK they may not look like a Nigerian Dwarf from a herd in the US

    Toggles...another thing I read on the British Goat Society website!!...


    What are those funny things dangling from their throats?

    These are known as toggles or tassels. They appear on both males and females in quite a few of the different breeds. Not all goats have them.


    I am learning far more from you guys it seems! Thank you!

    And as for Teddy and Tumnus' breed, I think you are right there. I mentioned on the other post that I thought they were probably mixed breed as they are not from a breeder but from a farm. I am happy with the wee guys whatever they are :greengrin: but I do find this all very interesting so appreciate the input xx

    well its a British/US difference thing when it comes to the Wattles/toggles
