    Picked this goat up and believe it's a Nigerian Dwarf...?

    Please help to confirm.

    It does appear to be a nigerian dwarf. Very cute.

    Looks like a ND to me too. If its not that then my next guess would be pygmy. I always have trouble telling the difference between those two. Good luck and very cute goat btw!

    Thenk you both.

    We already have Pygmy goats and he does look very close to the same.

    He, not it, may be a Nigerian Dwarf. But unless you get papers proving he is a Nigerian Dwarf, he can be a mix of anything. Small unregistered goats may be pure ND of a mix of Pygmy and ND, but you have no way to know for certain.

    Okay, well, I'm sure he's ND and possibly mixed with Pygmy. Yes I don't and probably will never know for sure...but at least I have a couple of good assumptions to go off of.

    Thanks all.
