    Well, I've been trying to find a nice fullblood doe to replace this girl from a breeder I trust. I wasn't able to find a fullblood but I did find two bred percentage does. I think they will fit in nicely here. I actually already own the older doe's daughter and I love her. She is one of my nicest does and did well in the show ring. We also figured out that she was registered wrong. Instead of being 50% she is actually 87.5% lol.

    Here's Jaeger the 4 yr old. She is 75%.

    And Astoria. She is actually Coyote's half sister on the sire side. She was young here.

    Both are bred to this buck who has produced multiple grand champion market wethers and breeding does.

    And this is Coyote, Jaeger's daughter, that I already own.

    If only you lived near WI we have a nice breeder here near me she has a nice 100% doe confirmed bred to a 100% buck 800 and another for 1,300 I would get them but still a bit out of my price range, the only thing that kinda sucks is that that all her goats are dissbudded so only babies could be shown with abga

    I promise there is no judgement from me on the breeder. Things do happen. Its hard to keep track 110% of the time.

    I like the look of Jaeger.

    I'm sure with your keen eye..level.head..and honesty. You will make the best choice. I do think the previous owner is a stand up owner! I really appreciate them. I also know..you will do your best to all concerned.

    I understand that everyone is worried and a bit angry at the situation and that's understandable. But y'all are making it seem as if she came from an abusive home where she was giving subpar care on a regular basis.. It's a bit mean to speak of the previous owner as if she didn't care and that she would purposely let this happen

    Yes, previous owner takes great care of her goats. This was just an unfortunate mistake and oversight on her part. But we all make mistakes!

    I think you should take the previous owner up on her offer. CIDR is a time released progesterone if that was needed this doe was probably not receptive to breed in the first place. She probably has reproductive problems and now has urinary problems, maybe indefinitely. $1500 and you didn't notice her behind? Is this an online purchase?

    Wow... cidr's are often used for timed breeding and if you had read further in this case they where used to time for ai procedures that have nothing to do with reproduction issues. The buyer and seller knew there was an issue it just happened to not be what they though

    Using a CIDR does NOT indicate reproductive issues. I use CIDRs on my own does so that I know exact due dates. They are very useful if you are planning on doing AI too which is what this breeder was doing.

    If you had read the post then you would know that I WAS aware of her incontinence issue at purchase. As stated she was treated with antibiotics before I picked her up because we believed it was a UTI which is not that uncommon in does. The breeder did not say anything about a possible CIDR until a day after I brought the doe home as she had forgotten since it was placed months ago. Educating yourself before assuming is key.

    The new girls did arrive! And I absolutely love them. Astoria came back into heat yesterday so she went in with Electro for March kids so that is exciting. Jaeger looks to be bred on ultrasound so hoping that sticks!

    It's a bit off topic from your original post, but since you raise boers I thought to ask.. Do you often have worm and foot problems with your boers? Asking because I'd like to raise some in a few years.

    I've gotten my herd to where they are pretty parasite resistant. But I do run fecals just to make sure there isn't an underlying parasite issue. I also stay on top of hoof trimming every 4-6 weeks to avoid issues. Most of mine now can go longer between hoof trims. I typically do not keep an animal that has hoof issues. Unless it is something that can be fixed. The hoof makes the goat so you don't want something that grows wonky.

    Totally agree with goatblessings. CIDRs can be very tricky to place, other does pull the string/cidr out, easy mistakes to make. How many human women forget they have a tampon in because it either moved position or the string broke off? Many that I have seen come through the ER.
