Not pygmy but my parents got 2 goats, they are smaller though (don't remember the breed). They got them to try to help with keeping vines and such under control on their 10 acres, but that didn't work out so well. They would tie them out but they would just get tangled in each others tie outs or wrap themselves around a tree. So now they are just pets...they have a big yard and are getting fat They aren't super affectionate either, even though they got them as babies and tried to make them friendly. They are cute though.
