I'll be praying everything goes well for you! So sorry you had to go through all this stress.
how did it go? did the breeder come for the girls?
YAY ! I guess she seen the light and the error of her ways
That's great ! Im so happy for you , keep us posted on what happens !
Plans are to meet at 3:00. I'm kind of dreading it, to be honest! Lol! I guess because I know she really doesn't want to do this!
That is part of doing business. If she doesn't want bad publicity, then she should cheerfully make it right.
Be yourself , be pleasant and get it done
And remember , you have a army behind you
Whoo-hoo! Two goats poorer and $400 richer! Hallelujah! No problem with the lady. She was as pleasant to me as she was when I bought the goats from her. Thank y'all so so much for all of your support!!
Glad it worked out.
Yay !!!! :leap::leap::leap:
Good for you ! Your persistence and patience paid off for you !
I know, I'm so glad. Kinda bummed at the same time though, because I now only have two does instead of four, but, oh well! I'll hopefully be able to add some really nice girls over the next year or so.
I am so sorry this happened to you - it does appear to be a "fish teat" which I do see from time to time raising boers (still isn't normal for them either) but in dairy goats the teat structure is very important and it will NOT be easy to milk a goat with this kind of teat. I would talk to them and see what they say about it. If they are reputable, they should offer you an alternative or refund neither of which is going to mend your heart. Best of luck
Glad it all worked out.
wow..just read this..glad it worked out...sadly some breeders snip those extra teats at birth and buyers never know..then they grow up and throw babies with split teats extra teats ex...its shady...It does sound like the buck was the problem....I look my babies over and disclose ( and price accordingly) any defects..., I also would never sell one registered with a defect..But maybe she just didn't look close..Glad she made good on this..
Thankfully I have never had to deal with teat issues...in the dairy world..thats a killer defect for show and sells...but they can make nice family milkers..
If there were more breeders around like her, there wouldn't be so many defects and problems to begin with.
I'm glad it worked out for you!
There is a lady down my way that has beautiful reg. Nubians!! Biggest girls Ive seen in along time..she is super nice and easy to work with...if you dont mind a drive lol, sometimes its worth it for good stock..her web sight is asbyfarms.com...
when we raised Nubians I had to drive 4+ hours to find any...and here she was only 30 minutes away the whole time!!!..
Oh and of course breeders like you guys on TGS, you know what you're doing
Cathy, we really don't mind a drive, so long as we're getting our money's worth! I'll look up her site. Thanks!
And, I showed her the teats, and she was amazed that I had even noticed. Said she probably would have never noticed. Any girls that I ever sell will be getting scrutinized, that's for sure!
