    SOOO cute, I'm jealous. They look like bunnies :D They should be pretty bulk when they're grown, huh?

    Are your goats pets? Are Texas winters warm enough that they won't get cold?

    (I don't mean to overdo the questions but I'm curious lol)

    Congrats!

    well boers are a meat breed they are a hefty breed, spanish tend to be rather bulky too.
    pygmies are small but fairly stocky themselves, should be some small but hefty looking goats :)

    I breed them for cabrito (spanish for goat meat),brush clearing or pets. I live near SA and they have 3 dog houses and a shed to live in. They also LOVE the rocks in their pasture they share with a horse and donkey. Another of my does had a baby two days ago.
