Crossing the African Pygmy Goat and the Nigerian Dwarf to create a family-friendly pet goat is becoming more popular.
Father of them all
Tumnus is our breeder, and fathers all of our litters. He is a stinker though and I certainly don't trust him. His curved horns are intimidating and more than once he's headbutted me and boy does it hurt! He is our only goat with horns and is quite eager to show off his prowess by battling with every other animal he comes across. He rears up on his back legs and rams headfirst into everything from fence posts to water buckets to fellow goats to me! It's pretty cute, as long as you're not on the receiving end!
He is apparently sweet to everyone but me, but these are just rumors and I don't believe them! ;).

With the split hooves that goats have, it can be a great habit to check their feet. You won't necessarily "pick" them as you would a horse hoof, but you can check for any kind of injury, infection, or object stuck between the hooves. .
