Price of each animal and deposit required will be published on website and through ads on Facebook or other media ads or sources.
A non-refundable deposit is required to hold the animal of your choice until it is ready to go. Deposit amounts will be agreed upon between Seller and Buyer and will be confirmed in writing via emails/texts/Facebook messages/ or other forms of written communication. All buyers must provide a written or electronic signature agreeing to the final sales/deposit agreement. Deposits can be made in person by cash, or online through PayPal, or other pay application agreed upon by seller and buyer. The remaining balance must be paid in cash at the time of the agreed upon pick up date. Seller may allow electronic payment at this time but buyer will be responsible for electronic payment charges in addition to the remaining balance.
All payments, deposits included, are non-refundable. Buyer will be provided a bill of sale for each purchase along with vaccination dates and records recorded by the seller.
If the animal of your choice were to die or develop significant health concerns before pick up, then your deposit may be transferred to another available animal for sale or returned in full.
All goat kids will be CD&T vaccinated, dewormed and disbudded (if not already naturally polled) before leaving, unless sold before the goat is old enough to perform disbudding procedure and the buyer requests horns to remain intact. If you would like horns, then please let us know as soon as possible as disbudding will usually be performed within 10 days of birth and no later than three weeks of age, if naturally polled is in question. Seller makes no guarantee regarding the formation of scurs after the disbudding process is completed and shall not be held responsible should scurs occur.
Goat Kids will not be sold as "bottle babies" to buyers with no experience. All "bottle baby" sales are at the discretion of the seller. If a goat kid is sold as a "bottle baby" the buyer is fully responsible for any health issues which may arise after sales transaction is complete, without refund. Although, "bottle babies" are (usually the most gentle and affectionate of pets) it is much healthier for the goat kids to be raised by the Dam if at all possible. We will do our best to socialize all goat kids prior to rehoming.
Buyer is responsible for Wethering/Banding any buckling that is purchased unless this procedure has already occurred due to the bucks age. Seller will not under any circumstances wether/band a buckling under 12 weeks of age and recommends wethering/banding at 16 weeks, although buyer should be aware that some bucklings are capable of breeding prior to 12 weeks of age.
All puppies will be dewormed a minimum of every two weeks beginning at 2 weeks of age. Australian Shepherd puppies will have tails docked at two days old, unless prearranged buyer requests otherwise. Deposits will be accepted to hold puppies of choice as early as one week of age. However, all puppies will remain in the possession of the seller until puppies are 8 weeks old, at the discretion of the seller. Puppies will have their first immunization between age 6 to 8 weeks and a documented wellness check with a veterinarian between age 7 to 8 weeks of age and records provided to the buyer.
If the animal is not picked up within ten days of the agreed upon date (unless stated otherwise), then seller retains the right to resell the animal without refunding any deposit, due to the loss of potential sales.
If buyer is interested in a specific pairing, please contact us to be placed on a waiting list. Deposits will be accepted and expected once the goat kid is born.
