Pygmy goats make excellent pets because they are easy to raise and handle, they are small, fun, affectionate, inquisitive and playful. They need shelter, food, company and like some sort of structure to climb and butt on. They will pretty much come when called – and at feed time will beat you to their house. They are very entertaining.
2015 Goat & Sheep Show Season went very well, always learning and always getting surprised by which goat or sheep comes out on top on the day. We had a new goatling join our flock from south of the border this year just to add a little bit to the mix. Our new young billy “The Rocket” has done his duty along with Hysopp and all the girls we wanted to kid are due in January.
Brucklay Pygmy Goats have Moved – If I knew what moving a smallholding would be like before we started I wouldn’t have entertained the idea – but there you go – hindsight is a great thing. We moved south out of Aberdeenshire into Perth & Kinross and closer to family – everything has to be started from scratch so we have a good few years of hard work – but also exiting times.
Please Note – pygmy goats are not good “mowers” if you have ground you want mowed give Shetland sheep a thought – come and see our flock who eat out of our hands, come to a bucket and love attention.
