We have progressively over the years improved our heard with selective breeding and heard management. We don't show a lot but we feel the quality is there. As with any breeding program we are trying to improve on the animals we have to work with. We do our best to eliminate undesirable characteristics and have made progress toward that goal. We do milk on a regular basis, and our goal is to breed does that are easily milked, have good structure and dairy character and correct mammary systems.
Having all those wild colors and the occasional blue eyes is a plus too.
We also breed Mini Manchas.
This is a cross between the Lamancha (which I grew up with and love) and the Nigerian dwarf. This cross has proved to the best of both breeds. You get the smaller size and little ears (which I love) and increased mammary system. So far they have been a great addition to our herd. We use a lot of milk on the calves and the mini's have provided it.
Most of our kids are dam raised unless circumstances dictate otherwise. We wean the kids at about 8-10 weeks and start milking the does immediately after.
Most kids go to their new home soon after weaning usually around 10 weeks of age.
Reserving Your Kid
To reserve a kid, not yet on the ground just email or contact us by phone with your selection(s). After the kid is on the ground and your selection(s) have been made a non-refundable deposit of half the purchase price is required. The remaining balance due upon pick up or delivery of kid.
Deposits along with any monies paid on cancelled orders are not refunded. As the breeder/owner of these animals, I do reserve the right to keep any animal born.
Deposits and Payment
Prices quoted are for animals picked up at the farm. Deposits on live and mature animals will
hold that animal until pick-up within 30 days After weaning.
Sending a deposit is your guarantee that you will buy
that animal at the agreed upon price within the time frame specified. Deposits on live animals offered for sale are accepted at the rate of HALF the purchase price per animal. Once a deposit is placed on a live animal, the goat must be picked up within 30 days or the animal may be offered for sale again or a boarding fee assessed at the rate of $4/day for kids and dry does, $5/day for bucks, and $6/day for does in milk. Deposits can be transferred to another animal but all monies paid on cancelled orders are not refunded. Cash, cashier's checks, paypal, money orders, credit/debit cards are accepted. Buyer is responsible for all health certificates, veterinary exams, blood tests, and other costs associated with veterinary fees and transport.
All goats are sold as healthy at the time they leave and no other guarantees are given to the future health and quality of the animal(s). Any further testing the buyer would like is at the buyers expense.
I do accept PayPal payments at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be aware that buyer is responsible
for paypal transaction fees. Fees are assessed by Paypal to recipient whenever you use a credit
card (or otherwise use uncollected monies) to make the purchase. Please include appropriate
fees in your transaction at the time of the transaction (ie: send $206.10 for a $200 deposit.) If your
paypal payment comes from a collected balance in your paypal account, you should not encounter
transaction fees. You can also send the paypal funds as a "gift" and fees are not assessed.
I also accept Major credit and debit cards with Square. I do prefer using this method for payments. As with paypal buyer is responsible for all service charges. In the case of the credit/debit card payment a 2.75% transaction fee will be assessed (ie: $205.50 for a $200.00 deposit).
