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!

They sound wonderful! How much space do you allow them? 

Three dogs, one rabbit, a ton of fish, and five pullets: one Welsummer/Production Red mix, two Easter Eggers, one Black Sexlink, and a White Old English Game Bantam.
