I am so sorry .....you cannot get the goats.....
Well now I guess I was wrong... I would have bet anything the opposite. But that is great news for you. If you can buy 2 Rosasharn does for that low of price you have some serious considering to do. That would have me thinking about taking the chance too. Just make sure that the registrations are clear and free and that Anne will sign off on them. And make sure they are healthy enough to buy, I would insist he find the cause of the diarrhea and treat for it. And if it is Cocci hopefully it is being taken care of before serious damage is done. There is a possibility that it has stunted their growth beyond repair, but it could be a quick fix and with some real TLC they could grow to be nice does. It is a chance you will have to be willing to take.He said that Anne didn't mind having her name on these breedings because she knew that the sire was a great goat from really awesome lines, soooo. . . . . I am so torn!!
I would really, really check with Anne before you do anything.capriola-nd said:Thanks for that Tina, that really helps!!
Well, I'll just explain briefly why they may carry the Rosasharn farm name. Anne was selling quite a few of her mature animals and this particular person wanted mature animals but did not have all the money at one time. So, Anne just let him ship these mature does and pay her off in payments. She sent the papers but not the transfer slips. Make sense?
I plan to email Anne and make sure this is all true. He did not come off as a dishonest person at all. I think the care of the babies was lacking just because he's a "newbie". I know our set-up and health care of our goats when we first started is not as great as it is now. Live and learn, I guess.
Thanks so much for your comments everyone! I'm still thinking about getting them so if you have any other thoughts, please share!
That is exactly what I was thinking... and am quite surprised to hear that she may. At least that is what that person is telling her, that Anne will. I would be shocked if she did. As I would never put my name down as the breeder if I didn't personally do the breeding. And I would never judge the buck being used by his pedigree alone. I would need to see that buck and get my hands on him first.It just does not sound like something a breeder of her repuation would do.
