at the moment we have 2boys as pets they also are a great help with keeping down vegetation on my property. people like the dwarves because you can feed 4 of them the same amount 1 large goat will eat and produce 2X the milk in return. people say dwarves are tender and similar to a deer 😞 my goats wont be used for eatng though! they are great little companions sweet with kids and get along great with my dogs and chickens!
i have about 3/4 of an acre i allow them to roam freely with the dogs during the day and at dark i pen them up they are still young so i have them in a temporary "play pen" setup that is about 30 sq ft but soon they will have a nice lean to barn with about 45 sq ft
