Deposits: A $50.00 deposit is required on all breeding stock and is rolled into the total price. Deposits are nonrefundable and all sales are final.
Sale & Reservation Policy: We cannot guarantee the sex of the kids or the number in the kidding. Deposits can be rolled to another goat only in the event that the original kidding did not produce the gender the deposit was originally placed on. The owner/breeder reserves the right of first pick from kiddings. Reservations are first-come, first-served and the deposit must be received to hold the kid for you.
Pricing: Bucklings and doelings are priced at $250.00 or $300.00, depending on the doe. Please see below for the specific kids prices. Any available wethers are $75.00.
Pick-Up: All reserved kids must be picked up or delivered within 7 days of being considered "ready-to-go" by us. This means that they are fully-weaned and have been vaccinated, dewormed, disbudded, and tattooed - basically, they are healthy and mature enough to go to their new home. If kids are not picked-up within this time, we will begin charging $1.00/day to board the kid(s).
Buyer Responsibilities: When applicable, it is the responsibility of the buyer to health exam/certification for goats leaving the state; blood tests for individual states; postage and handling on blood tests; and any vet fees incurred to complete the tests. More information on state-specific import requirements for states bordering Idaho can be found here.
Breeder Responsibilities: All goats leaving the premises will be free from any visible defects or health concerns - i.e. abscesses, other open wounds, or respiratory issues. We do our best to raise healthy, happy animals and have not had any health concerns in our herd during the past 10+ years we have been raising goats nor have we received any health complaints from purchasers of our goats. Kids will be current on their CD&T vaccination, disbudded, tattooed, and all sales of breeding stock will include either transferable registration papers or an application for registration. Pet sales, including the sale of wethers, may not include registration papers. While there are no guarantees or warranties on our sold animals (once they leave the premises), we always do our best to ensure happy homes for our goats and their new owners. This is why we are always available - and happy - to answer any goat related questions you may have; both before and after your acquire your new animal(s).
New Home Requirements: When purchasing our goats, we require that they have at least one other goat at their new home. Goats are herd animals and, while they may be around other animals, truly do need the companionship of other goats. When available, we are willing to include wethers as pets at a discounted cost. When there are no wethers available, we are more than happy to make (discounted) package deals of our available animals.
Delivery: In most cases, we are willing to either deliver purchased goats or meet you partway. Mileage fees may need to be applied depending on the distance traveled. If this is a concern for you, let us know and we can make arrangements.
Discounts: We offer both a 4H discount and a multiple goat-purchase discount. Our 4H discount is 20% any of our For Sale animals and can be applied to multiple animals (kids, bucks, does, and wethers are all included). Our multiple-goat discount only applies to our breeding stock (doeling or buckling kids, does, or bucks) and will be applied on all sales of three or more animals to the same buyer. This discount is 15% of the total purchase cost.
At this time, we are only selling weaning-age kids, not bottle-babies. Typically, we leave our kids on their dams and wean in the late summer. We have found that this produces more stable goats that still are human-oriented and friendly, as well as granting the kids a great leg-up (nutritionally) by allowing them to naturally integrate forages/roughages at an earlier age. Previous and recurrent buyers of our goats have noted how friendly and outgoing our sold goats are. If you live in the area and are interested in our herd, appointments can be made to come visit our herd, depending on the time of year and our current schedule.
No expected kiddings. We did not breed our does this past fall and are currently undergoing a herd reduction.
