Pygmy goat infomation?
Hi. My MIL and I are getting 2 pygmy goat babies (females) in about 3 months after they have been weaned from their mother. I know just a little (very little) about goats. My MIL in on the other hand has been raising dairy goats for over 10 years and is very knowledgeable about her goats. however neither one of us knows much about the pygmy breed. She is getting one and I am getting the other but they will be living together. We have been trying to find a book on the subject or a really good website detailing on the care of them but have not been that lucky. Everything I find is either on large goats and not the mini or just very very basic info on pygmy. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Also I am not just going out and getting one for a pet because i think they are cute. We will hopefully be raising a small herd in years to come for milk, etc... like she is doing with her 13 other goats.
I normally would not acquire an animal until I have read and feel that i am fully informed on the subject. but a friend's goat just kidded and we may not have the opportunity to acquire any for such a reasonable price for quite a while.
Thanks for any advice.
