I answered this add on Craigslist 5 kid goats looking for a new home price is [email protected]
Owner has too many and unwilling to send them to slaughter house
3 females, 2 males
When mature females suitable for milk
production and cheese!
MUST buy at least 2 at a time, goats are very social and WILL die without companionship!
FIRST COME FIRST SELECT from herd

No phone # or anything so I emailed. Asked what kind they were, where they were located, and if they have ever been CAE, CL, and Johnes tested. Their answer was Nubian/Pygmy and we are in Seattle.

My thought cool, another kinder, since I already have some. So I asked for their phone # and gave mine in return thinking I might get testing info then... Well they at least I think they called... They continued to speak in a foreign language, no English whatsoever, and it sounded like this person was upset. I get another email stating they were in Seattle, and then a bunch of symbols... Huh???? Well, I guess I'm not getting one:( I don't really need another milker anyway I just thought the price was right.... Why post an ad and then not follow up with it? Doesn't make any sense to me....

the add doesnt seem like a second language, unless they had someone write it for them...and the fact they want to sell two because they need companion says they at least know a bit about goats and care....maybe the phone number was wrong??

They never gave me their phone #. About a half hour after I gave them mine and asked for theirs, I got the call..., then I got the email, that they were in Seattle with a bunch of "Asian" not really sure, characters. I did answer back a few minutes ago and asked for an address in Seattle, because they look darling in the ad..... I could just take a look at the overall health, and just get her tested when she is old enough. The ad didn't seem like a second language to me either... Yeah... I still want one:)

So emailed them to see if I get a different response for you. Here is what I sent:
Just a few questions on your goats:
1. When where they born?
2. What Breed?
3. Has your herd been tested for CL, CAE &/OR Johnees Disease?

Thank you in advance for getting back to me.

Well interesting, my mom just got a phone call that was yelling in a foreign language, so I'm going to say, they haven't called, and these calls are unrelated to the ad. Okay, I feel better, my wallet won't though after a possible purchase, but hey, I have fallen for them:)
