Pygmy goat

3 of 11
Tumbleweed is our 2-year-old goat. He was born one of three pygmy goats, which is unusual in itself; typically, goats have only single or twin babies. Tumbleweed apparently did not have enough room in his mother's uterus, so he was born with only three legs. We held him under his mother until he could stand on his own to nurse.

Out of all the goats we have, he is the only one who can jump over his pen. He runs to us when we come home from work. Since we rescue other animals, we knew when he was born that we had to help him. He is the sweetest thing and the favorite of all who visit our farm.
