Little Thor was born during a heavy thunderstorm on June 13, 2013.

He is the son of a Nubian Billy and a Pygmy Nanny. Pygmy goats are very hardy and resistant to disease/parasites. Large dairy breeds are brush-clearing experts.

“Little” Thor is very tall so far and is an active, good eater with a shiny coat. He started off black and white, but has developed a few brown moon spots. This baby is a very pretty boy.

Thor has been banded, making him a wether (neutered male). He has not been dis-budded, so will therefore have horns.

Little Thor has the mild mannered attitude of his sire and the peaceful qualities of his mother. This lovely boy should make a good pet, companion goat and/or brush clearing machine.

Little Thor is good with children. He is also used to dogs and other goats.

Goats become very unhappy when separated from their pals. If you have never owned a goat before, please keep in mind that they are herd animals and therefore need a buddy or two.

We had our first goat bond with our dogs, so it is possible for them befriend other species after a few days of complaining. But, goats do best with other goats.

Little Thor is eating greens, hay and grain regularly.
