UNDERSTAND BEFORE YOU BUY GOATS OR SHEEP
Please make sure your property, food and supplies are prepared to bring your goats/ sheep home.
Before purchasing confirm all permissions with your family, your land owner, your home owners associations and City Ordinances for livestock raising at the proposed property.
If there becomes an issue, we will, at our discretion, keep(prior to pick up) and potentially accept the animal back if problems arise but no refunds will be made. IF we can accept a returned animal, understand it must go through testing and quarantine prior to being integrated in the herd/flock. It is an expensive, labor intensive, 60 day process
All our goat kids will be disbudded, NO EXCEPTIONS
We have both horned and naturally polled (without horns) sheep breeds.
We DO NOT de-horn sheep.
All kids/lambs will have received colostrum and mothers milk. Those that stay until they are weaned will have had a selenium bolus, be up to date on CD&T vaccines, on a coccidia prevention and be dewormed before they leave. We will also give them a copper(goats) and cobalt bolus (Both) prior to leaving, providing they meet the weight minimum.
-BOTTLE BABIES will only be sold to experienced people. It is not just a “bonding thing” It is a delicate way of raising a kid/lamb and inexperience can cause fatal outcomes.
YOU must be ready and able to provide the time and energy and resources to be responsible for providing any and all care it needs, including vaccines & worming, at the appropriate times.
Bottle babies will not be removed before 3 weeks of age.
-Wethers (castrated bucklings) must stay until weaned.
WE DO NOT CASTRATE RAM LAMBS
