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.

2020 kidding season has finished – 20 lovely kids playing on the hill when the weather allows! It has been an ok kidding and at least more compact than last year and we didn’t loose any girls this time – thankfully. All the kids are doing well and I am looking forward to them growing and getting braver on the hillside. Also before you know it show season will be here so come by a show and say hello. The new billy Kincaid had kids and they are very nice – very happy with him – he will be out and about this show season.

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. Still renovating as I wrote that some time ago but hopefully this year 2019 I will get a home to live in.

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, except for one of the black ones who is way too canny!!!
