I have 2 what I was told were African Pygmy goats. The interesting thing is that they both have a ver pronounced ridge of hair from their necks to their rumps, similar to a Rhodesian Ridgeback dog. It is longer and curly. Is this normal?
Just wondering, their mom didn't have it and dad usually had his hackles up about something, so I never noticed!
I was wondering, I knew they were called AFRICAN Pygmys, and I have heard of Nigerian Dwarfs, but no Rhodesian Ridgebacks!
They just turned 2 months old on 4/2. Hopefully the little black one will grow some more soon, so she will stop walking through the fence mesh!
The black one (Peewee) is a doe and the white (Boots, or BooBoo) is a wether (or will be once they finally drop off!)
Peewee was half BooBoo's size when they were born. She was smaller than a banty cochin hen we had in the same pen! (and the silkie)
