    Well Dream Catcher shipped in this past Friday. I was so nervous about the shipping thing cause I hadnt never done it before, but it was a piece of cake on my end. I think Ashley probably had more work on her end then mine. But it all worked out great and Ashley is awesome to work with. Here are a couple quick pics of him when he first got here on Friday.
    He is the sweetest thing, so very friendly, and fit right in. Im so glad that I got him and cant wait to use him this next fall. Thanks so much Ashley.

    Glad you like him!!!!

    It wasn't too much work on my end. I was the one who REALLY didn't want the scrapie tag in his ear, so that made more work on my end for myself, so don't you worry about it. And American Airlines just hadn't shipped goats out of Bradley before, but once they called their supervisor and found out they did then they were nice as could be. :)

    I have to say I'm a fan of his markings as well. :) When he came out I kept looking at him wondering what color her was! :D

    I love him he is the greatest. Im glad you didnt want the scrapie tag cause I didnt either but I wanted him to be able to come here. I didnt want to cause you to much running around either. But Im glad it worked out so well.

    His markings are gorgeous and I love that big spot on him. My mother-in-law is the one who took me to the airport cause I hadnt ever been there and she had. She thinks he looks like a little deer, she thought he was so cute.

    I would like to know more about this too, in addition to what it cost. What have to be done to avoid a scrapie tag? I would love to know if that could be done here.

    The shipping was through American Airlines it was just a little over $200 dollars to ship him. Health Certificate $35 but depending on vet, and crate cost. I live in Ohio so no additional test had to be done on him to ship him in. But some states do require additional testing for TB and stuff. My knowledge with the scrapies tag is as long as they are tattooed they dont have to have a scrapie's tag to come into Ohio. I dont know for other states.

    His mom is NC Promiseland Dreamer and dad is Irish Whisper Puff daddy. Thanks everyone I love him like crazy.

    Congrats!!! Oh, he is beautiful. Love him! :love: :drool: He should give you some lovely kids!

    I would love to see his face. :greengrin: My Yippy Skippy doe also reminds me of a little deer with her delicate face.

    Have you seen your new boy's grandsire's page yet. There are nice pics of the goats and udders behind him on there.

    Another congrats!!!

    Awwww he is so cute! Ashley always has the prettiest kids with beautiful markings, must be a secret feed she gives her!

    So glad to hear the shipping went smoothly, as I have been thinking about the same thing at some point.
