Sales & Reservations Click HERE to see animals currently available!
Sales and Pricing: KIds: Doelings typically start in the $250-$300 range, and go up from there. Buck kids usually start at $400. Kid prices are influenced by a number of factors, such as genetics of sire and dam, overall quality and performance of sire and dam and any previous offspring. And of course, there's the quality of the kid itself. In light of this unborn kid prices may not be set until after kidding, and we may not charge the same price for all kids in the same litter. However, in most cases a range or estimate is given on our reservation page, so buyers have an idea what the price is likely to be. A definite price will of course always been given at the time waitlisted buyers are notified kids are available.
Single goat purchases only to homes that already have goats. A companion wether can be purchased with the doeling for $75, pending availability.
Bucklings: Bucklings will occasionally be available. As the best way of evaluating a buck's quality is through the accomplishments of his daughters, special pricing may be available to those with herds on DHIR test, regularly participating in Linear Appraisal, or active show herds. Please contact me for details!
Adult animals: At times I will need to reduce the herd to make room for new breeding stock. These animals will be listed on the For Sale page.
Wethers: Wethers are $100 each, $175 a pair. As goats are herd animals, single wethers can only go to homes that already have goats.
Reservations For 2018 kids, we are moving to a Wait List type of reservation, with no deposit needed. We will have 2 doeling and 2 buckling slots (if bucklings available from that doe) for each doe. When kids become available, I will notify you by email, Facebook Messenger, and/or by phone that your kid is available with the kid's price. You will have 48 hours to respond back with a yes, no, or any questions. If I don't hear back after 48 hours I'll assume you did not want the kid and offer it to the next person in line, but I'm really hoping folks will let me know one way or the other.
Once you agree to purchase a kid, you will be asked to get the deposit to me within 5 days (I will accept check by mail, but must be received within 5 days notifying me you will take the kid). Deposit is $200 or 50% of the purchase price, whichever is less. The balance will be due at the time you pick up the kid, or BEFORE scheduled pick up by a third party, delivery, or ship date. All breeding stock are sold registered with ADGA with their ADGA registration papers; breeder chooses the name for all registered kids.
Deposits are refunded if the kid dies before pickup, I determine the kid is unfit for sale, or if I otherwise cancel the sale. I understand that sometimes life can be terribly unpredictable, and under certain circumstances which I deem acceptable, I may elect to refund a deposit. However, backing out of a sale because you changed your mind, your spouse said no, or you bought a kid somewhere else, are NOT acceptable circumstances.
For all other sales, weaning (about 10 - 12 weeks of age), at which time the balance of the purchase price is due and arrangements for pick-up or delivery are to have been made.
I reserve the right to cancel any sale or reservation at any time.
We will only allow animals to leave our property if visibly healthy; meaning, normal temperature, vitals, and bowel movements, no colored discharge from eyes or nose.
Kids sold as breeding stock are guaranteed free from of genetic defects causing infertility. Should a kid sold as breeding stock be found infertile due to a genetic defect, we will replace the kid with another kid of the same gender, as soon as one becomes available. Proof of exam and statement of findings from a licensed veterinarian, clearly stating a genetic defect or defect present at birth is the cause of infertility, must be submitted to us within 30 days of the date of the veterinarian's findings.
Payment: Cash, personal checks, and PayPal are all welcomed for deposits. I strongly prefer PayPal and cash for final purchases. I do not like to take personal checks for final purchases, as I cannot release animals until the check has cleared my bank.
Shipping and Transport: Delivery may be possible within 3 hours of the Vancouver, Washington area for a fee to cover fuel costs. Shipping available via air out of Portland, Oregon or other ground transport; buyers are responsible for any and all shipping and associated shipping costs (kennel, health certs, etc.). As each situation is unique, please contact me to discuss details regarding delivery or shipping.

I am here to support you in getting started, so that your experience with these wonderful little goats is a positive and enriching one!
