If you have always wanted goats but thought you needed rolling acres to keep them, Nigerian Dwarf/Pygmy might be just what you were always looking for. They are small (think fat Labrador size) sweet and, provided you can give them shelter (garden shed?) sturdy fencing to protect the roses and plenty of hay they will be very happy and give you years of companionship and love.
We have been breeding miniature goats for sale for many years now and are presently enjoying our latest bunch of babies. They are currently round about 7 weeks old and will be able to leave their mums sometime around July when they will be fully weaned and ready for their independence, buy mini goats online from Fondness Mini Goats! We never sell single goats as they would be very lonely and miserable on their own and we only sell uncastrated males to very special homes with large enough herds to keep a male fully occupied. Having said that, please don’t discount the little boys. When they have had their “bits” off (before they leave home) they make lovely pets. No butting and no nasty smelly habits! By the time they are ready for their new homes all our goats have been vaccinated, treated with parasite prevention both internal and external, and ear tagged as required. Horns are a part of goat’s cooling system and we have never known any of our goats to cause any problems with their horns.

Providing your goat with an appropriate diet is the most important thing you can do to keep them in good health. Most health issues in goats are caused by an inappropriate diet. Goats should not be fed human food. Most of their diet should be composed of food they can forage, such as grass and hay. You should only give them minimal amounts of pellet feed or grain, since they can gain weight easily. Pellet feed and grain can also cause miniature goats to develop bladder stones, which can block their urethra and cause death if untreated. They also need access to a mineral block or loose mineral that’s designed to complement their diet of grass and hay. Make sure they have plenty of fresh, clean water available at all times.
The average lifespan of a pygmy goat is 10 to 15 years, so you should be prepared for a long-term commitment if you decide to keep one.
You can help your pygmy goat live a longer, healthier life by ensuring they have proper veterinary care. They should be vaccinated yearly with a CD&T vaccine that protects against overeating disease and tetanus. As part of their routine healthcare, you should also monitor them for evidence of gastrointestinal parasites that can cause diarrhea and anemia. Your veterinarian can put your goat on a preventative worm control regimen.
In addition to providing a proper diet for your miniature goats, you must ensure they have a safe and enriching environment.
Despite widespread belief, goats can’t eat just anything. Many plants are harmful to goats, so they shouldn’t be unsupervised in areas where you can’t control what plants they have access to. Well-fed goats are less likely to ingest poison since they aren’t as hungry. A hungry goat will be less discriminating about what it eats, so ensuring your goat has plenty of healthy food is the first step in keeping it safe.
Some plants and substances are toxic in small amounts, while others are toxic over time, with the consumption of large amounts. Some possible toxins you should make sure your goat avoids include:
- All houseplants
- Flowering bulbs
- Landscaping plants
- Rodent poison
- Creosote-treated wood
- Lead paint
Goats are herd animals, so they’re happier with other goats. They’ll need a place to shelter from extreme weather and plenty of room to explore and play. Your accommodations don’t have to be fancy, but your goats should be protected from the elements and drafts. Plan for at least 15 to 20 square feet of housing per goat. They’ll love niches where they can climb, sleep, and jump. There should be sturdy fencing around their housing and exercise area, so they can come and go as they please. The fencing will keep your goats safe from predators and protect them from toxic plants and other dangers.
Goats love to play and exercise. Watching your goats have fun playing is very entertaining. You can encourage their play and provide healthy stimulation by giving them toys and equipment. Although you can design elaborate playgrounds, simple toys will do just as well. Old tires situated about 18 to 24 inches apart will provide a jumping challenge for your goats.
Another fun toy is a teeter-totter made from a log and a 2″ x 6″ board. Just avoid using a board that’s too long so your goats won’t get caught underneath. You can also adapt the idea by setting up a balance board with two posts and a cross board. Your goats will have a blast walking across it. Natural materials can also be used for playground equipment for your goats. A fallen tree will give them a place to jump, balance, and play games with each other.
