Our dwarf goat

The pygmy goat originally comes from Africa and the Arabian region. The 'dwarfing' is an adaptation to poor environmental conditions in their countries of origin (barren landscapes) in which the smaller animals found better living conditions.


This breed can be kept outdoors all year round as they are very hardy animals. However, there should be a draught-free, dry shelter/stable. It is important that the area should be fenced off with a wire mesh (hunting fence) and an electric wire, since the pygmy goat is a very lively breed and tends to break out.


In order to be able to breed pygmy goats you should have plenty of space. Because triplets or quadruplets are not uncommon.
