Nigerian Dwarf Goats for Sale

We let our Kids Walk All Over Us!

All our goats here are unregistered, but we have had them here on our farm since 2005. The Nigerian Dwarf goat is one of two miniature goat breeds in this country originating in West Africa.

There are several recognized breeds of small and dwarf goats in West Africa, and it is from these native African herds that the first "miniature" goats were imported into the United States. Although illegal imports are suspected earlier, the first documented imports arrived in this country in the 1930's and 1940's, for the benefit of several private and public zoos and preserves.

There were two distinct types of small goats imported, one being short, cobby, with short legs, and the other being more slender, with a longer body and proportionally longer legs and a more streamlined appearance. In the earlier years, in fact until about the 1960's and 1970's, little distinction was made between the cobbier type that became the African Pygmy goat, and the more dairy-type goat that became known as the Nigerian Dwarf.

Over the years, selective breeding has resulted in the two distinct breeds that are recognized today in the United States: the African Pygmy Goat and the Nigerian Dwarf. Nigerian Dwarfs are considered rare by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.

Our herd is a Nigerian Dwarf/Pygmy Cross breed, according to experts, leaning more toward the Nigerian Dwarf side because of their flashy color, eye color & conformation.

Color is one of the factors that makes breeding Dwarfs so popular. You can never be sure what color the babies will be until they are born; even then you can't be sure because many times their color may change. Main color families are black, chocolate, and gold with virtually every color combination imaginable being produced. Dwarfs can be dalmatian-spotted, pinto-patterned, tri-colored or just classy shades of solid jet black, white, chocolate or gold. Buckskin patters are also popular, described by contrasting facial stripes, a "cape" around the shoulders with a coordinating dorsal stripe and leg markings. Brown eyes are the most common; however, dwarfs with china blue eyes are becoming increasingly popular and available.

We maintain a small herd of Quality unregistered Nigerian/Pygmy cross goats of good confirmation and even temperament, but most of all happy & healthy goats. They are of several different colors. All are vaccinated, wormed and well fed.
