    I wish I could make myself not look at Craiglist! I've been thinking about adding dairy goats to my herd for quite a while, saw nubian & alpine bottle babies for $30 a piece & called right away........ No CAE/CL/Johnes or Scrapie testing, they weren't sure if the dams were vaccinated prior to kidding, didn't know what kind of milk/milk replacer they were using..... ggggrrrrrrrrrr.......... had to say "thanks for your time" and pass it up. :(

    Guess I'm not supposed to do that just yet.

    Thanks for letting me vent.

    Good for you! I mean for making sure they have health requirements met. It will keep the rest of your herd healthy. And I agree...the right ones will come along. CL is my weakness too!

    I'm also addicted to CL :roll: Too bad no one around me ever has goats! Sheesh. The closest I can find is a papered Oberhasli buck an hour away, which I have no need for.
