    So I responded to an add on another site for Nigerians - 3 2 year old does, and 2 spring kids that were bottle babies.

    They are not registered at the moment - but have registration that can be turned in. They are dirt cheap. I am waiting for pictures right now. The goats are about 2 hours each way from me - but I am getting excited!!! Might have some more registered Nigis to add to the herd!

    I am still waiting to hear on a few details - but I received these pictures.

    The picture of the 3 girls are all 2 year old does - I LOVE the white and black one with the stockings. I guess these girls are a bit skiddish. Then the other is buckling and doeling that were born this spring. I want these two definately if they are infact registered!!!

    3 does

    Allison, do you have running water in the barn? What about a shower? Heating blanket?

    I only ask because you are surely headed out to sleep there. :slapfloor:

    Those goats are really nice. I love the babies,

    Sweetgoats -

    I have running water, electricity, oh and a 5th wheel that I can sleep in - right next to my goaties - LOL! Heck I could even pull it into the pen if I really wanted to! :ROFL: :ROFL: :ROFL:

    I have not said ANYTHING to him yet, as I want to find out more about the registration. I think is what happened is she never received the registration from the original owner - which makes me wonder if I am going to have to pay for the papers from the original breeder before any can be registered. If that is the case, I am not going to take them. I don't need an unregistered Nigerian Buck or any more unregistered Nigerian does especially since I already want to keep some of Joe's babies!

    Yeah, that sounds a little difficult. I never trust people to send papers, after what happened to us earlier this year. These people seemed really nice and sweet, we bought the doe, gave them our address, NO PAPERS! And it's been 6 months. I emailed and called. They said they were still working on it and apologized. . . . w/e. Never again. :roll: Only person I would really trust to send papers promptly is Anna, she's good about that.

    Anways, hope it works out for you to get them!

    yah - I don't NEED any new goats -that is for sure - but the price I couldn't pass up if there is no additional fees for the papers. SO we will see!

    Re: Cross your fingers please

    Ok - D-O-N-E~~ I am getting 5 new goaties AS LONG AS the test results come back clean.

    I just talked with her on the phone and we are doing the blood work and she even "sweetend" the deal for me!! AND she has all the registration paperwork - all in her name - but never turned in the kids' papers as she was a little confused on the tattooing and some other things. But she is going to give me all the info so that I can get everyone arranged AND she wants to get a Nubian doeling from me when they are born! Whoop Whoop!! :cool: :cool: :cool:

    I am completely stoked! AND I have NOT told hubby yet :help: Anyone want to share a fifth wheel with me! LOL!

    I don't know, after 17 years she may not be able to put up with me anymore. Just kidding. I am going to nominate her for sainthood for putting up with me though.
