    I hate it when the offer I've been waiting for is too late. lol I just got offered my DREAM buckling and I can't get him because I just got Chase. It's a black with tan trim buckling out of CH Easy-Stream Extatic. You can see her on this page, http://www.dillsalittlegoatfarm.com/nub ... ordoes.htm
    They want $800 for him but they'd let me work off some of it. I wish this had come up before I'd gotten Chase. :tears: (I still think Chase will at least improve Lyric some and he's still a decent buckling) :help:

    Yes, I would sell Chase as well, the bucklings' pedigree is amazing. Plus Chase's dam probably doesn't have the greatest udder- and although he might improve on Lyric, this buckling would do so tenfold. His dam is gorgeous.

    I agree with Julie, if you have the chance to get a buck like that ( :drool: ) I would definately try and get him. He would do wonders for your herd. I personally wouldn't flinch to pay that much for a buck that is really good, we've paid that much for a couple bucks....and does............ :wink:

    Wow, that's sure a nice doe...I'd be considering the possibility of selling Chase as well....

    Oh and by the way...IF you were to sell him, let me know because I might know somebody that would be interested in him.

    Okay, I have a MAJOR guilty conscience. :sigh: I love the sounds of this buckling, but I'd feel so bad, because the lady I got Chase from was so excited to see what he would produce with Lyric after I used Orion on her. :( I guess I need to get over this if I want to be a bigger breeder I guess though. :hair: :help: I'm not sure what I'll do yet though.

    If I were to sell Chase (not saying I will just curious), how much do you think I could get for him? Because I have to take into consideration how much they are willing to let me work off and how long they'll let me make payments. Because usually they want them gone straight after weaning and they just weaned him. I'm also selling Heidi so if I can get her sold that will help too.

    I really don't know. :GAAH:

    I would tell her how you feel, tell her you want to get into showing, and in comparison to this other buck chase just isnt up to the standards. If you think about it yur buck is half of your herd, he can service a lot of does including outside does. a single doe will produce on average two or three kids a year, how many can your buck produce? My yearling had twenty this year....I dont flinch at paying eigh or nine hundred for a buck, he is the one that is going to improve on your does. If your does are better then your buck you are taking steps backwords in improvements, you want your bucks to be better then your does. One buck isnt going to fix all the faults but he can do a great deal of fixing faults.
    You will also get more out of a kid out of the other buck then you would out of chase. as much as you like him and want to see kids out of him and lyric, i think you will have better kids out of the other buck. Remember that it costs the same amount to feed the bucks, but in the long run you are making more money off of the nicer of the two bucks. Im not trying to push you into anything, just telling you what my personal opinion on the matter is. taking into consideration the cost of feed these days, you really need to try and get something out of your animals. I know they are pets and you love them to death. But several years ago i made up my mind that if im going to have these animals they might as well at least help with the cost of their feed. Paying for a nicer buck you are going to get nicer kids and in turn kids that are easier to sell, kids that are easier to market and kids that will do better in the ring bucket or whatever you want them for.
    I hope this all makes sense.

    Well, I think I may go ahead and keep Chase this year and sell his kids next year and just buy a doeling after I sell Heidi this year. And save up the money to buy a nice buck from either Extatic, Melody Rose, or Lebeau next year. I still haven't exactly decided if this is how I'm going to do it or not though yet.
