    Okay, I think I did something kind of dumb . . . I have a Nubian doeling, 2 yo, who has never kidded, (her father throws consistent socked on udders) has horns, has slightly downhill conformation, a high escutcheoun, and really big milk orifices, beautiful straight legs and tight shoulders, could be wider in the ribcage, and could benefit from sharper withers, has a steep rump and could have a slightly longer neck.
    Despite all that, she has the perfect legs, the perfect stride and the perfect shoulder and chest space. She is really wide in the back, and she will have a super udder.
    However I had her priced at 120 because of her awesome disposition and her siblings awesome udders.
    After looking her over critically, I think I have priced her unfairly. I think a lower price would be fair . . . what do you think?

    no she isn't registered---- and I don't think I have a good pix of her . . . I'm doing school (online) right now and later I will take a pix of her to put on here.

    I think 120 is perfectly fair, I wouldn't sell her for less.

    Talitha,

    One thing that you definately need to keep in mind if you truely are wanting to sell her is that the market in our area is not good for goaties - especially coming into winter because of what happened last year.

    Such as when I quoted you the price of an unborn doeling from Joy. I knew that she would be worth more, but with sight unseen (unborn), late kidding in the season, and coming up on winter, I wanted to move her, as I really did not want to keep her.

    I personally just bought a Nubian doeling and buck for $50.00 each. Both can be registered if I want. The buck's dam was appraised in June as a 91 or 93 E.

    I am not saying that this girl is not worth what you are asking, please do not get me wrong, but she is an unregistered, unproven, and the market right now is horrible.

    Just my 2 cents.
