Pygmy Goats - I've had two or three and, believe me, they're very clever and as agile as deer! I spent a lot of time repairing fences! Yes, they're cute and a barrel of fun........but need regular hoof trimming as well as annual worming and shots. And, of course, daily alfalfa or lower-protein hay and a little sweet feed (mostly oats, I think).
Goats, although traditionally thought of as farm animal, do make good pets. A perennial favorite in petting zoos, their curious, friendly nature make them good companions. There are a wide variety of breeds available, and the dwarf or pygmy varieties are probably the most commonly kept as pets.
