He's either the biggest busybody goat ever, or he's honing his craft at being the great 'Watch Goat' that he knows he can be. Make no mistake about it, he's got a set of pipes on him that rival his buddies Pancho and Lefty when it comes to noise making.
Also, I think there is a part of him that really wants to grow up to be a Donkey. I've noticed that when Pancho and Lefty graze off to the side of the goat enclosure, Clyde is always down there grazing along with them. He never goes down to that end on his own, but if they are there, so is he. Also, in the mornings, he's always over at the fence as I'm feeding the donkeys. Partly it might be because he knows his food is coming next, but he puts his feet as high as he can on the fence to make himself look taller.
It reminds me of my soon to be 5 year old daughter. She's adopted and of Mayan descent so I don't think she's going to be a starting forward on the basketball team, but she constantly tells me she wants to be a 'big kid.' I think Clyde is like this too, he might be a Pygmy Goat, but he really wants to be something bigger. Whether it's a 'Watch Goat' or the worlds first 'PygmyGoatDonkey' he's going to give it his all. And for that, I'm happy.
