This would be my very first dappled goat. I am only planning on buying one. There is no minimum bid on any of them. Doe #3 has been exposed to another dappled buck. They are all registered with the ABGA. I would like a few different opinions on witch doe is the best. Thanks!
Since your not going to be seeing them in person I would ask for videos. Pictures can be deceiving and a video USUALLY (not always) gives a little better idea of what the animal is. But going off the picture of each doe I myself like 3,1,then 2.
Also IMO “exposed” means a whole lot of nothing to me. I have purchased, and paid extra, for “exposed” and they never had a kid. So on anything I like that is exposed, I put that word out of my mind and I Will pay what I think is fair for just that animal. It is less frustrating that way. If it was confirmed bred or guaranteed bred that would be a whole other story
She was bred.
She was exposed to a buck.
It is a safe way to say, she may be bred or not.
If you say she goes as bred, the seller must abide by that and may come back on you, if she aborts.
They will ask for her to be bred back.
If something happens to make her abort, disease, giving meds to getting hit hard. We as a seller can not predict what may happen after she leaves our place, so it makes us liable for giving the buyer what we sold them. If we say she is bred.
Being exposed does not say you will receive a kid born on he ground.
It means it may or may not happen.
So we must word the sales so we are not stuck.
Yes exposed pretty much means that she was thrown in with a buck. She may have bred, she may not have even been Cycling.
But unless something is stated that a breeder is guaranteeing live kids then no, confirmed bred doesn’t mean that the breeder owes anything if something happens while the new owner has the animal. All confined bred means is that blood was drawn and confirmed that way or by a vet ultrasounding.
I pulled up the does you were looking at. I pulled the # s up.on ABGA. THe first two are on ABGA. The third doe is not. I noticed it said pending
The doe is a year old, wheres the papers? So you cant verify if she is 100% boer or less percentage. I would call the person on her listing and find out more about this before i would bid on her.
Hmm... while I like the first two, their teat structures aren’t shared. They just say “show correct” which could mean any teat structure that is permissible on the ABGA chart. At least the third is said to be 1+1.
Depending on Teat structure I actually like number 2 the best. The first one is ok but there is something I dislike about her hind end. I cannot quite place my finger on it. SHe is nice and thick but not my type. Number 3 is my second choice. The reason I like number 2 best is because while she is a nice thick girl she still looks very feminine. I will say I am not a fan of her mouth though.
