Maybe the pygmy's are more sensitive- the dairy goats kids don't bother that much. We did the male kid this week as he went away on Thursday, and he gave a little start, but didn't yell at all.

My boys will be going to the vets at 4 months, which was what the breeder recommended. Ive already asked about the fees as I wanted to know that it wouldnt be a shock before we got the boys. Its around 15 for each one, which I didnt think was too bad. Ill be dreading the day I take them, and I do mean I. My hubby wont go to the vets with the animals if he knows that they are going to endure any pain. Especially castration. Probably brings back too many of his own painful memories. Ha Ha !!
