    I put and order in on the 1st and still have no clue as to when it will get here.The last order was here in 2 days.Dh called them last week to find out and they don't have part of my order and are waiting on it but they didn't tell him when it should be shipped out and today I cant even access there site....I'm an impatient person..not to mention Im waiting on my herd name to see what it will be......

    there site is working fine for me. Hoeggers isn't know for being speedy with anything. So I hardly ever purchase from them, their shipping is usually more too.

    I tend to order as much as I can from jeffers.


    what choices did you put down for the herd name?

    I hope you know that your first choice is 23 letters long and that leaves only room for 7 letters uncluding spaces for the name of the goat

    The last time I ordered from Hoeggers it was really slow, but they usually aren't for me. I really like the Dancing Rain herd name :)

    wow, i doubt anyone has the herd name. You will probably get it. In all reality that leaves you with six letters for your goats names, because there will be a space between the herd name and the actual name. Very limeting as to what you can use for names.

    Lol Oh no.....what did we get ourselves into guys! LOL Actually quite funny you mention that my aunt had a puppy named bethany (my legal name) shortly before i was born. So i always tell my mom she named me after a dog. Of course my aunt had a puppy named jill (my cousins name) She is only a few months younger then me....

    lol thats funny. I once had a goat named ugly, i know its mean but he was going for meat anyways. He was a chamoisee with a large blaze that ran down his face, it made him look like a cow and made his head look crooked.
    Had a pair of bucks last year named crash and burn. Crash had a wonky ear that fell down to the side. And when you looked at him his whole face looked crooked. hence the name crash, burn just kinda went with it.
    i guess there really are a lot of short names you could use,
    daisy sugar ruby dixie dolly tanzy the list goes on.

    Hoegger's in is the town next to me. They really are a "mom & pop" operation. I've called there before about a backorder and the owner, Ann, actually answers the phone herself and sometimes is running the place by herself.
    I do get DE there. I ordered kidding supplies. Still waiting for those kids. :roll: I guess I was really off on my due dates.......................

    I have heard from several people that Hoeggers is slow with getting everything shipped out. I have never ordered anything from there.
    I order everything I need from Jeffers. And if Jeffers and the local farm stores dont have what I need I go to the vets office. :wink:

    Hi ordered a whole bunch of stuff from Hoegger's about 3 weeks ago and got everything except the most import part of my order: the Showmaster Shearing kit. Their website is working fine, but they aren't answering emails and both of their phone numbers have been constantly busy all week.

    They were cheaper for what I bought than Jeffer's, but I hope they enjoy my order
    'cause it will probably be my last.

    mmm
