Once notified and a non refundable deposit is received only then is the kid reserved. We reserve the right to retain any kid at anytime. Deposits will be refunded for any kid that we decide to retain.

We care very much about the placement of our goats and as always, educating our clients for the ability to successfully care for their new goats is especially important to us. Clients purchasing our goats are given a full course on goat care prior to the animal leaving our farm. Basic care class averages 1-3 hours and is mandatory unless we feel prospective buyer is knowledgeable (not applicable for discounted goats, or wethers. For those coming from long distances or out of state we will give the class same day. Please understand these goats are born into our hands, fed, nurtured and loved by us. We take great care to place our goats in an environment where they will continue to receive the same care and love so they may thrive and bring many years of companionship and productivity .
For those that wish to take our goat care classes and are not purchasing one of our goats, or for current clients that would like a refresher course contact us for more details and pricing.

Transition to a new home can be very hard on a goat. A quarantine period of 30-60 days in a dry-lot environment is suggested.
Individual husbandry skills, management, and environment can affect your goat's health; therefore we make no guarantees on the parasite resistance or dairy production of any goat.
If goat has been disbudded we are not responsible for the development of scurs or treatment thereof.
Below are some recommendations that may be helpful in your goats transition.
~ allow goat to settle in, avoid over-handling
~ "dry-lot" goat for 30-60 days for a quarantine period
~ provide fresh water, hay, feed and loose mineral
~ transition feed and hay slowly (we will provide a square bale of hay and a small amount of feed and the name of feed to ease the dietary change)
~ provide adequate shelter
~ follow your veterinarians advised quarantine protocol
We recommend coccidia prevention for growing kids.
It is the buyers' responsibility to know if their area is Selenium or Copper deficient and adjust the animals health needs.
It is the buyers responsibility to monitor for parasite load levels.
*We recommend finding a good livestock veterinarian with experience in caprines BEFORE you acquire a goat.
