    Well, I just got some new photos of my alpine buckling finally. Hopefully everything will be okay. It makes me nervous to buy an animal from so far away. But I'm willing to take the chance I guess. Here is the boy!

    Wishing Al a safe, smooth and otherwise non-eventful flight. Let us know when you have him in hand and how it all goes.

    WOW he is beautiful. How exciting for you to get one from a breeder that is no where near you, that just means you have a totally different line coming in. :leap:

    I would love to get a animals from the east, they have beautiful goats, but it is the travel that kills the deal. :veryangry:

    Oh congratulations! He's a beaut! I know what you mean about the travel - my new boy is coming in from AZ at the end of this month and I can't wait!
     
  15. Congrats congrats! As for the flight I have a friend that does it a lot, you should be fine. At times it can be less stressful then a long drive.

    She went ahead and shipped him anyway! Luckily, she got the check today. So everything is cool. Al is home safe, we will keep an eye on him to see how he does in the next couple of days. He was in his crate for 24 hours, poor baby. He came leaping out as soon as we opened his crate. You could tell he was starting to get depressed in his crate. He was laying down inside, humming very sadly. At first he didn't move or say anything, I freaked out at first. But he bounced all around the yard tonight. So I think he will be okay. Needs a bath though. I'll get pictures after he is clean. He's so much prettier in person!
