    I sold one of my doelings and the man paid cash for her. He asked me to keep her for a while until he got his fencing finished and he will pay me to keep her here.

    What is a fair price (maybe it's different across the country - but I'd like ideas) on what to charge per day?

    $1-$2 per day, that should cover hay

    Ye;, I agree with AlaskaBoers...$1 to $2 a day per doe sounds fair.

    I had an Alpine wether board with me and I charged $50.00 a month to cover hay and hoof trimmings.
