If this is your first time purchasing goats from us, please give us as much info as to what you are wanting in your email by answering these questions and giving us any other relevant information. If you are an established breeder you can simplify things by sending us your website. I want to be sure that I am selling goats to good homes, and new buyers should want to be sure that they have everything ready for their new goats before they bring them home.

Also please bring collars and leashes when coming to pick up. They may not cost that much $5-10 each, but try to imagine how much money I spend in collars every year when hardly any buyer has them. I'm not comfortable letting goats leave without them on. What if you had an emergency and had to unload the goats on the road? How would you do that if you didn't have collars and leashes? Even once you get home with the goats, you will need them, unless you are going to pull right into their pasture before unloading them, or you are going to carry them. 

What are you mainly wanting the goats for? Showing? Breeding only? Milk production? Pets?

What age goats for you looking for? Adults? Babies? 

What are your main considerations when picking goats to purchase? Udder genetics? Conformation? Pedigree? Polled? Blue-eyed? Color? Personality?

Are you aware that they are herd animals? We aren't going to sell one to somebody and it be their only goat. You don't have to get two from us, but you have to have at least two. 

If you are interested in polled goats, are you aware that most people don't breed polled to polled as it can result in sterile offspring. 

What are you planning on feeding the goats? They need products specifically made for goats, not sheep and goats, or horses, or otherwise.

What type of housing do you have for the goats? They need an actual barn or at least a shed, not just a pen with an igloo or crate. 

What type of fencing do you have? Rolled fencing tends to sag after a few years of the goats rubbing up and down on it. Once that happens they might get out over or under it. 

Do you have guard animals, such as dogs? We have had many people tell us that their goats were killed by a neighbor's dog/dogs. That happens more often than coyotes. 

Do you have a vet that has experience with goats? And if so, do they have an emergency service? In the middle of the night it is worth anything to have that kind of help.

How are you planning on picking up and transporting the goats you purchase? You can transport several goats in the back on a SUV or mini van in crates. That's how most people do it. For short distances, in weather that is not too hot or too cold, crates in the back of a truck works okay. Just have tarps to cover with in case of rain.
