Here is a picture of our two Nigerian Dwarf nanny goats.  The fawn colored one we call Ellie Mae, and the tri-colored is Bobbie Jo...Ellie Mae likes to butt chickens.

I have always wanted a goat. Do they make good pets?

I can't speak for other goat breeds but our Nigerian Dwarf goats make fantastic pets! My girls are both very good tempered, playful, and affectionate. I can tell when someone is in the yard because if the girls spot them, they start bawling. Just like a dog that barks. They tend to want to jump up on you to get your attention. Since they are only get about 22" tall, they don't knock you down. We got these two about a year ago and I've never regretted getting them. In fact, David has been looking at getting some more to add to our family.  grin  And of course, I'm planning to have them breed in Oct or Nov so we will have spring babies.

Is it true that you don't have to feed goats cause they'll eat just about anything or do you feed them?

JP, we feed them a special mixture of grains and feeds (not too much though) They also have grass and alfalfa hay when free grass is not available.  They have free mineral and baking soda (helps the gut). Our daughter is showing them in the county fair next week.  They are nice pets and really good for children.  And like all our kids, they are spoiled rotten.... grin...by my wife.

Yes dear...  rolleyes.  Its not so bad now that they have extra room to run with the chickens.  They don't bawl at me so bad now when I am in the woodshop.  At any rate I'm thinking a couple "blue eyed" ND nannies would add to our collection.  grin
