Goats make for very friendly and socialble pets

I have many goats, which are all kept as pets. We started off by getting 2 and they were just like having a pet dog. They're very active and if you call out to them they call back and run towards you for pats.
We then brought 4 females which 2 of them were pregnant. I've delivered 4 baby goats (most adorable little things ever) but sadly since their birth only 2 of them are still alive today due to complications at birth and wild animals.
If you're living in a big area (mainly a farm, these animals are need a lot of space) and you're thinking of what animal to get I definitely recommend getting a few goats.
Only negatives about my goats is sometimes they'll try and headbutt you if they're moody and since they have little horns it can hurt but apart from that they are generally very happy, social and affectionate pets.
