In my personal experience Nigerian Dwarf Goats are delightful creatures. Betty had beautiful eyes and a colorful coat of fur.
She was actually a rescued by my family at birth and grew up with the rest of the animals she was around. (horses, pigs, ducks, ext) The funny thing is, she really took to the horses and ended up thinking she was one. If you'd look out the window of our house, you'd see three 4 majestic horses grazing on the hillside... and Betty the goat. We all really got a kick out of it.
She was never aggressive and always happy to be around other animals and people. Never really was a huge fan of being milked, but that may have just not done it enough for her to get used to it.
Ever had someone compare you to a goat because you eat a lot? Well the joke is based on truth, Nigerian Dwarf Goats sure as heck eat anything. One day, our painfully intelligent horses let themselves and Betty out of their stall, and broke into the feed bins. The horses ate around the plastic bags, Betty didn't. Please be careful of what you have around your Nigerian Dwarf Goat. Double check and double lock everything.
I had a great experience with my Nigerian Dwarf Goat. If you're looking for a quality goat to add to your ranch, Im sure you won't be disappointed.
