8. Pygmy Goat
The lovable pygmy goat from western Africa weighs around 35 to 60 pounds and costs $450 to $1,400. This friendly, hardy goat might need a kennel built for it, as well as fencing to prevent escape.
Hoof trimming is needed every month to keep it from going lame. It requires minerals in its diet, so it should have a salt lick available all the time. If that weren’t enough, it usually drinks seven to twelve liters of water a day.
