    You can put an ad on Craigslist. Just make sure that they have papers proving that the goats are disease free. The other thing you can do is look up goat breeders in your state. I just happen to answer an ad on Craigslist for someone selling a buck and asked if they would rent him out in the process of selling him. It was funny because I already knew the person too.

    You might want to go to your county fair this fall and get aquainted with some local goat people.

    well, these are pygmies crossed with a nigerian dwarf, so i would like to stick with that..i think they are cuter than full blood pygmies.

    I have a black with gray socks, and gray muzzle fainting goat that is about to be two months old. He will be an excellent stud, he is from great lines, and will be small with great lines. I have no idea what breeding a fainter to a pygmy would do, but I'm sure its been done before. If you are interested PM me.
