    Or anywhere else goats are posted for sale.

    I saw an ad that was for a small herd of goats - several adults and a few kids. It said the adults had had their top teeth removed, but the kids had not. :?

    Rofl. Send them an email and ask them how they got the teeth out, that you would like to gum your herd. Lol

    Post their response. :)

    Well where are these goats! I might be able to make some serious money with a new kind of goat that has too teeth. I can see it now.....has top teeth for higher weight gain, better digestions and oh boy if you give me time I can come up with a awesome sales pitch lol
    But usually what I see is just lies and BS. One guy breeds for March kids and has sold kids to X fair that is in May and they topped the market. Well I know for a fact they have to be under a year, and there is no way that a month old is 70+ pounds.
    Another guy who is actually a buyer of mine only buys fullblood goats but never does the papers, and only buys goats that their birth rank is 2 or more. He's never bought a 100% from me and over the years has purchased 5 kids that were singles sooooo.......

    Lol! I actually saw it a while ago, so mad at myself for not contacting them or screenshotting it or SOMETHING!!!!!!!! :doh: I went back a few days later to find it, and it wasn't up anymore.

    I didn't screen shot or save it. But suffice it to say a young couple was looking for a free goat in milk. They were willing to trade adult acts for that goat (not with the goat obviously).

    I flagged it right away, I mean, I'm pretty sure its against craigslist rules?! lol And since this is a family friendly forum, thats all I will say about the ad.

    It was by far the worst/craziest goat wanted ad I've ever seen.

    I can't top any of these, but I did enjoy one ad that showed a picture of goats, the title said sheep, and the body of the ad called them both sheep and goats. And yes, they were calling the same animals both species, not selling 2 species in 1 ad.

    This involved CL, but wasn't actually on CL. I answered an ad, they responded with different info than was in the ad I answered. I pointed out what the ad actually said. They wrote back and literally told me I had "answered the wrong ad"!!!!

    I saw an ad for a Nigerian Dwarf for $200
    The goat in the picture wasn't their goat and I knew it immediately
    They had taken the picture of the Nigerian Dwarf from Wikipedia

    A few months ago back when we were in search of another milk cow to replace one of ours, I saw an ad on Craigslist with a Jersey calf for sale. The two pictures were very good quality and I thought that it was probably a scam. The ad said that they had a large dairy farm and due to an 'oil mine' or something they had to get rid of their sweet little calf, Betsy. "Betsy loved being scratched behind the ears".
    Me and my brother googled "Jersey calf" and on Flickr the exact same photos of "Betsy" came up. Below the pictures on Flickr it said "Nicholas as a young calf. Nicholas is a male jersey calf....etc", and it was dated back to 2008! Honest people sure are scarce nowadays. :/

    I guess there are a lot of people out there who don't know the difference between a sheep and a goat.
