The Pygmy Goat Society (UKPGS) is run by people,
for people who have a passion for these extraordinary
creatures and want to share their experience, knowledge
and fascination with these wonderful little goats. The
society is here to promote, encourage, give advice and
to simply enjoy pygmy goats. You can also Register Heard
Names, stock and sell stock on
this website, but you need to register and become a Member first.
We encourage membership if you are serious about keeping
pygmy goats, as a member you will have access to very
specific help, advice and guidance on a range of pygmy
goat topics, as we work together and
share information, knowledge and advice on what to do,
and what not to do, feeding advice, health care, routine
maintenance, showing techniques, breeding advice,
sharing fascination stories about our goats and more.
The society is focussed on all pygmy goats and whether
you have two or three in your back garden or fifty in a
large enclosure makes no difference. We are inclusive,
open and willing to share.
Talk to anyone who has kept pygmy goats they usually
smile, their eyes twinkle and they regale you with
stories of the “naughty” things their goats used to get
up to. “I remember when mum was out, we used to let them
into the kitchen and feed them a biscuit.... I remember
they used to climb on our ponies back to get to the best
apples in the orchard...”
People often ask me why I keep pygmy goats, as there is
no commercial value to keeping pygmy goats at all, far
from it, however my answer is simple and often repeated;
“Because every day, every single day – they make me
smile, and most days they make me laugh out loud”.
