    We have our hearts set on getting 2 or 3 pygmy goats for our little backyard farm. Ideally we'd like a mother and baby, and then one more female. We really want to milk at least one of them. Anyone in Texas know where we can get goats? We don't care if they are registered and certainly not for show. We want them for pets and the milk..[​IMG] We will provide them with an excellent home...our neighbor behind us wants to put a gate in the fence and fence off an area on his property for them to roam about too..[​IMG] We have a little over 1/3 acre...

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Did you post in the Buy Sell Trade section too?

    Surely there is someone close to you that has them for sale.
    Also, if you want to continue to milk them, you will have to have a Billy, so they can be bred again, or take them somewhere to be bred.

    We only have 1 pair right now, but I have friends that breed them, if you don't find any near you. I don't know what they charge for theirs, but I can ask if you want me to.
    We are located by Cedar Creek Lake, Mabank.
