Anyone who has been around goats already knows how intelligent they are. I never thought they "looked stupid". I love them...they can be as affectionate as dogs when treated well.

Pygmy goats are funny and cute little creatures. How stupid can goats be? They feed themselves, provide a service to those that have them.

Whoever said goats look stupid? Know what does? A person who's just been butted by a goat doesn't look too smart.

Many critters are more intelligent than people tend to give them credit for-- people who have never lived or worked with them, anyway. I haven't had much experience with goats personally, but know friends and neighbors who have, and they adore the little buggers
