Let’s go through a few things that are important if you’re thinking of getting a pet goat or you’ve already made this step and want an opinion on how having a goat will change your life.
Most people keep goats on farms and they are considered livestock animals. This means that you’ll have no problem owning a goat if you also have a farm. Things are slightly different if you live in a highly populated urban setting. You should check your city’s laws and your neighborhood’s rules on keeping farm animals as well before adding putting a goat in your backyard.
The reason why you will have to check with your local authorities is that some places have very strict rules when it comes to the size of pets or the maximum number of pets you can own.
Some of the most popular pet goats are the popular pygmy goats. These goats won’t produce any milk but they are very small, making them perfect as pets for more crowded places.
On the other hand, if you want a small goat that also produces milk, then the Nigerian dwarf goat will be perfect for you.
Aside from these, other goat breeds that are preferred by people are the Kinder, Pygoras, and Mini Alpine.
If you get a smaller breed of goat, it won’t need a lot of space. You should get a maximum of250 square feet of space per smaller-size goat.
Most people get anywhere between 3 and 10 goats, and a little over one acre of land should be enough to house them. Goats love eating grass and will spend a big part of the day just looking for something to eat, so the amount of grass on your land will also be important when figuring out how much land you actually need.
Although you might prefer to get just one goat, you should know that these are herd animals, so they will like it the most when they are among others of their kind. If you can’t host more, you should at least get two goats.
If you can’t house two goats, then you should know that they will also get along pretty well with other pets, so instead of a second goat, at least get either a cat or a dog. Keeping them together with other pets will be almost just as good as having more goats. They will make a herd with whatever friends they can find around.
Goats are great animals to own, regardless of whether you want to keep them as farm animals for their dairy products or as your close companion pets. If you want to find the perfect name for your goat, then you will surely find something you like.
