    So we just got our across the streets neighbor's goats because they are moving to a different state and cannot take her with them, she is a sweet goat, but we are planning on getting pigmy goats (she is a pigmy goat and saanen goat cross dad was a pigmy but they didn't know what breed) anyways is there certain ways to intergrate pigmy Kidd's into her life IMG_20180319_182630_390.jpg

    I typically let my goats meet through fencing or a barrier first to get use to each other in a non-physical way before I put them in the same pen. I’ve never had an issue with my goats getting along to the point that I was worried about their safety :) since your girl is all alone chances are she will be super happy to have some friends. When you do integrate them into the same pen just keep an eye on them. Some head butting and “fighting” is normal- just trust your judgement if you need to separate.
