    Please see this ad on Craigslist: http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/grd/1848375804.html

    A friend went to see them and bought two unregistered does. The guy is leaving at the end of this week and she says there are probably about 30 goats there yet. He doesn't seem to want to budge in prices but says the butcher will give him $25 for them. She said they really really need help. Anyone else interested in them - act quickly? I have not seen the goats but did see her two does that she bought. Apparently he has some polled goats as one is naturally polled.

    Maybe it's just me but don't you think it sad he will take $25 per goat from the butcher but wouldn't consider taking oh I don't know $40 per doe if you were buying more than one?

    Just saying...

    exactly - my friend is hoping that by the end of the week she may get a lowered price. She is afraid that he may move and just leave the goats there - no pasture at all where they were penned.

    If that happens and she doesnt have enough space to rescue them please let me know. I think I am roughly 3 hours from that area. I can bring a horse trailer and help her.

    I can be reached at [email protected]. That email comes right into my blackberry too so I would see it anytime.

    Is this Brian and Sara from Howling Hills Farm?
    I am on a yahoo group who posted that they need to disperse their goats.
    If it is them , there is a lot of nice animals there, they built their herd on mostly Old Mountain Farm goats.
    I know if I had extra cash right now, I would be purchasing a few.

    yes, it is - Fogelsville is near Allentown. Sounds like he had great goats and great idea for marketing, but something happened it all fell through.

    If it is them I saw the list of goats and there are some very nice ones from Old Mountain Farm...

    I don't have the money this month after already spending almost $1k on my 2 potential herd sires and new doeling :(

    We can help rescue as well (shhh don't tell my husband).

    We might be interested in buying. Would like to know for sure who they are before, though. Does anyone know if he is one of the people the above posters are talking about?

    This is the add that was posted on the one yahoo group:

    Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goat Herd for sale


    Howling Hill Farm is a licensed Grade A dairy farm with registered Nigerian Dwarf Dairy goats.
    Our farm was licensed in Maine, but since, has relocated and been licensed in Pennsylvania. Our herd of dairy goats has excellent genetics, geared toward dairy production. In 2008 our herd tested negative for CAE, CL and Johnes and has been a closed herd since then. Due to unfortunate circumstances in PA, the entire herd of 50 + goats is for sale at very reasonable prices. Some dairy equipment, such as a milk machine and cream separator are also for sale.


    Contact me via email or phone. [email protected] 484-504-1084

    EEEk, Stacey, it sounds like they are JUST the type I would not want to deal with. Not saying they are bad people, just that getting a new goat is tough enough without the added problems of not getting her/his registration papers after paying for a registered doe/buck.

    We will probably stick with looking for a buck to stud for our two ladies.

    I just got an email sent to me.... the owner sent a mass email to addresses found on the NDGA member listing, must be desperate to sell if they did that.

    Has anyone herd anything about the goats? I have to admit I have been worried about them.

    The email I saw last Tuesday said they had two weeks to disperse the herd.

    Stacey can you email me the "scoop" on these? My mother's been pestering me about this ad for a week now.

    I just tried to go to the ad and it says that it has been deleted by the poster. So I guess either they sold all their goats or maybe put a new ad in and deleted the old one?
