I found this ad on NH craigslist do you think its a misprint or is this little guy really worth $900.00 :shrug: I just thought that was an outrageous price for a day old buckling what do you think?
http://nh.craigslist.org/grd/766722849.html
ad reads:
Pure White Nigerian Dwarf Buck - $900 (milford)
We had a late kidding last night (july 23) he is adga and AGS registered. And if not he would make a great wether. He has had his colostrum and will have had his shots and been disbudded. He is white all over and cute as can be. When i get a chance to get some pics i will post them or if youre interested i can get some ASAP.

Hey guys! I emailed the lady, she said it was a misprint and he is $600! Still waaaaaay to overpriced for a new kid! Wow, I thought he was going to be like $90, not $600 and she said he needs to be bottle fed! I hope no one goes for that deal! :doh: Oh boy...

It does seem a little overpriced but keep in mind that he is double registered,and if he has good confirmation he may be worth a lot.I'm not by any means saying that he is worth $600 I'm just saying that I'm sure the woman has her reasons.

Wow! That's a lot of money! There are $600 Nigerians out there, many of them. . . . usually people that sell them have very good reasons for doing so, excellent bloodlines, conformation, etc. I don't think I'd ever buy a $600 goat off CraigsList. Hope she either has very good reasons for selling him at that price or no one goes for it. :wink:

He must have some of the best bloodlines, super conformation, and both parents are champions if a bottle baby is $600! I don't really think Craigslist is the place to sell a $600 goat. Hahaha, I think it's hilarious myself! :ROFL:
There weren't any pics...should I request a couple? I would, but i'd feel bad knowing i'm not interested at all especially since i'm clear across the country! It would be sooooo interesting to see though!

I never ever put in the email that I was interested in purchasing - I just put the following word for word. :wink:

"I have seen your ad for the Nigerian buckling. I am curious as to his pedigree and also to his sire's dam's udder and confirmation.

Could you please send a couple pics of him showing him from the side standing and also his face.

Thank you
Allison Spacek"

getting requests from people not interested isnt uncommon as people tend to like to see what you have priced that high and if they have animals who are compatable and able to sell for that much.

I ask for info sometimes and after I see I decide I dont want/need/like so it isnt like you are being terrible.

I would be interested to see as well.

Pocketsizedgoats has a buck up for sale that is young but did WELL in the show ring and he is 600.00 So it isnt unreasonable.

Over the years I've seen some people get huge prices for their animals. Basically they ask and wait for the right person to come by. I on the other hand am embarassed to ask for any money at all. Thank goodness I don't have to make a living with my animals. lol
More power to that lady- she may singlehandedly raise the value of every goat in her area.

I hope she does raise the value of every goat in her (our) area as right now I cant even get 50.00 for my 5 month old doeling an buckling, the market here has fallen drastically BUT the price of hay i have seen hit over 10 bucks a bail at the grain store! go figure lol

Hey guys...I didn't even ask for pics, but this lady just emailed some to me this morning. :shrug: Maybe she's in a hurry to sell?? He sure is a cute little thing...I really like his mom! Allison, definately post this boys pedigree though! He very well could be worth $600 although I would never pay that much! Anyway, here ya go...
