Pygmy goats are adorable miniature goats. They are very fun and funny animals. They are very affectionate and are playful with children. Pygmy goats are adaptable to many climates, but like other small mammals limit exposure to extreme temperatures. They do not require much space and do well in urban environments. Although many zoning laws may require owners live in rural areas or in a large urban space. These goats also produce a quality and healthy milk which can be used to make a variety of items from cheese to soap. Pygmy goats are also harvested as meat by some, while others enjoy them exclusively as pets. They love to jump on whatever is within their reach. Pygmy goats are also prolific poopers, the balls of bowels become plentiful over the course of a day. Clean up is easy as the balls can be rolled away and the smell is little to none unless one of the balls are crushed. The feces can also serve as a great fertilizer for an urban garden.
