Baby pygmy goats are so adorable. The photo below is "Rascal", one of the
pygmy goat kids that my daughter and I raised. There were three kids in his dam's 
(mom's) kidding: two bucks and one doe. Rascal went on to become the
Ventura County Fair Champion Wether! (a wether is a castrated male). Pygmy goats
are supposed to have large barreled bodies, short necks, and short legs, as 
you can see by the bottom photo of Rascal, where he's all grown up.
