Lifespan of Pygmy Goats
We have raised goats for 33 years. For the last 20 years we have had pygmy goats. Treated well, not overfed, given their shots, lots of clean water and fresh, healthy food, our goats have lived to 15 years. My oldest one is now 15, but she is starting to fail. We raised her by bottle feeding her with her mother's milk so she would have an attachment to us--and she thinks I'm her mother! So I'd say they max out at about 15, and anything over 10 or 12 means you are doing something right!
