Baby pygmy goats are the happiest creatures on Earth

Two cute little baby pygmy goats (two and three days old) are enjoying their new life so much that they decide to break out in a happy dance. The videos show the goat’s improved dancing skills after turning eight days old.

FACTS: A pygmy goat is a breed of miniature domestic goat. Pygmy goats tend to be kept as pets primarily,though also work well as milk producers and working animals. The pygmy goat is quite hardy, an asset in a wide variety of settings, and can adapt to virtually all climates. The anatomy of a pygmy goat shows it has many features specific to pygmy goats, such as a thurl, but also has features similar to other animals, such as the dew claw which is also found on cats and dogs.

Pygmy goats are adaptable to most climates. Their primary diet consists of greens and grains. They enjoy having items to jump on and may be able to leap onto small vehicles. They are also in need of a shed and open area accessible at all times. They also need a companion, which doesn't necessarily have to be its own species.

They are prey animals and should therefore be sheltered in a predator-proof area -especially at night. Goats require fresh water at all times or they won't drink it. Pygmy goats are often affectionate if they are treated with respect.

They can also be trained, though it requires quite a bit of work. It is important to make sure pygmy goats are comfortable and warm during the winter months. Simple measures such as feeding pygmy goats luke warm water and luke warm food, as well as ensuring their living quarters are free from drafts, can make pygmy goats a lot happier during the winter.
