    Did you get her from them? If so I would let them know. They may trade her for a different goat.

    no she's from the ndga milk head's herd, but her dad was from rosasharn.


    i have sent her an email to tell her, and she may replace it, but i can't drive 12 hours to exchange goats, and i had gotten really attached to gabby too.. but now i don't even want to breed her, and i cant show her

    I'm sorry about that. . . . how upsetting. :(

    I can't imagine someone selling a "show goat" that has an extra teat. We check teats right after birth and all through the time they are with us.

    Maybe you can work something out to meet halfway or something?

    SDK.... if you paid for a show quality animal....by golly ...I would request one.... :) ... you may want to try to figure out.... how to exchange her...even if your attached.....unless you ...just want to keep her and get another one? But I know .....we are not made of money right now... :( ..... as you said ...."she's my show doe" ...but now she is not.... :( very frustrating....

    Gosh thats too bad..but I would sure want to know if I happened to sell a goat with DQ that perhaps I didnt notice...sometimes extra teats can show up a little later, at least in Boers.
    I always do a teat count at birth but there was once a the doe that did develop an extra one a little later on.
    Yes the breeder should know in any case, and should be willing to work with you.

    she wouldn't do that purposely, and it wasn't the doe i was originally to get, i was supposed to get her sister and at last minute she died so she brought her with instead. i don't know. i may just get a replacement doe out of next years kiddings and pick it up next year in pahrump again

    i was checking around 5 toth so it was getting dark, its really close to the other teat, but it looks separate

    the breeder just responded and said if its a third teat she will bring a replacement doe kid down in december when she comes to visit her family

    ok cause i was wondering if i was asking too much. i'm asking 200 for each doe w/no papers and the one with papers is 250

    thats not horrible right? i do have newer pics of most everyone, just haven't got them up yet.. still editing the size but i say 200 and people freak out

    I definitely think that is a fair price.....there are so many people trying to get your goats for nothing.....these days ...taking advantage of the fallen market.....If you are trying to move them faster go a little lower ......if not ...I would tell them "you get what you pay for"...

    They may of paid less somewhere else..... but it is not near the quality you will get with SDK goats.... :)

    oh thats sad about Gabby -- do you have to trade her or can you "buy" her from the breeder when they bring the new doeling?

    If you are having such trouble with feeding (I feel you pain, thankfuly prices have gone down here and I am still going ok with my job) maybe having another mouth to feed isnt such a great idea ...... BUT if she is special sometimes you need to keep them around because they remind you why you have goats.

    I am keeping Mia eventhough I am not breeding her at least not this fall maybe in the spring. I figure she is a pet and she reminds me why I love my goats so much.


    Oh and about the feed --- look into the fastrack I posted about. You can cut your feed bill in half as you dont need to feed as much.

    So SDK ..........I would recommend dropping your prices slightly ....at a time ...until you can move those goats.....Kinda feel the market a bit with pricing..... drop slow ...not drastic......Good luck :) ....

    she will be bringing me down another jr doe on dec 4th, which is cool cause i may already be out meeting the girl who bought gia and alley

    not sure how the whole thing is going to work out, i know i don't need to put money down for it or anything, i just don't know if she wants gabby back or not either way is fine with me.. i'll be sad but money is a big deal right now and i need to sell as many as i can
