Gizmo Nigerian Dwarf Goat

Chill as a Cucumber

Gizmo is the most laid-back, relaxed, chill goat at Shepperly Farm. His beard and fancy pompadour make him extra adorable, and very popular with guests and the other goats. Gizmo loves the other goats at Shepperly and gets along with everyone. If you're looking for a relaxed goat to pet while you're here, Gizmo is as chill as they come.

Shepperly Farm Fun Facts

Nigerian Dwarf Goats originated in West Africa. They were originally brought to the United States on ships many years ago to be used as food for large cats being delivered to zoos across the country. Sometimes, these goats survived the trip and were left at the zoos to be used as another attraction for guests. 

Thanks to their small size and friendly nature, Nigerian Dwarf Goats make great pets. Their size makes them easier to maintain than a full size dairy goat because they require less living space and resources. They are friendly, gentle and are a great animal to have around with children. 

They are also great animals to mix in with other animals. They get along well with llamas, cows, donkeys, horses and other farm animals and will happily run and play with their much bigger farm friends!
