So I have to rant. I am kicking myself big time, and rightly so, I seriously am sick over it to be honest. I contacted a breeder inquiring about a buck kid they had posted a pic on FB post where someone was looking for a buck. The breeder sent me more pics and a video - he looked great. I asked how old the video was and was told 10 days. I loved the pedigree, outstanding, and we were super excited to go get him after making a deal. Breeder was away at show, they are big breeders but I'd never had any dealings with them before, but had heard good things. We go to get him yesterday, and he looks nothing like the pictures and video - nowhere near as nice, big hay belly, not as level and definitely not show quality. not knowing what to do we brought him home. He is 'ok' but not at all what we were expecting. On top of that, he has mites severely on his front feet and starting on his back end and scrotum. I feel so horrible for him because it's not his fault. He's just a baby, 3 months old, but not show quality. My goat friends that I've consulted with agree - he absolutely does not look like the same goat at all from the pics/video that I was sent - he was younger and much nicer. My very good neighbor who has goats came over and inspected him and agreed, for the $$ he is not nice. I asked breeder this morning if we can return for a refund. They said they typically do not take returns on bucks, and that we could exchange for something else, but they would be older and more expensive. I kindly messaged back that I would consider looking at them, but right now my kids/family are very discouraged and my kids do not have more $$ to spend. What do you guys think? I mean... I am not a big breeder, but if someone wasn't happy with a goat I sold I would tell them to bring it back especially if I sold it right away. If it had been a couple of weeks, and the animal was in poor condition, I might reconsider. I am so upset over this. I will refrain from posting who the breeder is or photos of the goat in case we can reach an agreement, but never in 10 years have we been so disappointed with a buck purchase.
