Goats Small and Large

Goats Small and Large

You might think of goats as small and cute But… many goat breeds are larger and heavier than humans. 

Sure, there are lots of little goats. Dwarf goats are the smallest specimens at 50 cm and 20 kg. If you have a really big lawn, they'll make a great pet. But… get more than one. Goats are herd animals and a lonely goat is unhappy.

An average goat weighs about 80 kg. Several species are much larger. The African Boer goat can weigh up to 140 kg. The Nubian goat even reaches 150 kg. You don't want to wrestle with that. Fortunately, the big goats are also big darlings.
