About Our Goats
While our primary market is as breeding stock or butchering animals, one question we hear is," Which make the best pets". We do not recommend a single goat as a pet. These are herd animals and need the companionship of other goats, or at the least, of other animals. Historically goats have been used as companion animals for horses. They also seem to fit themselves in well with sheep, or even groups of pet animals such as dogs and cats. It has been our experience that the castrated males (weathers) are the most friendly and easy to care for. The does can be just as affectionate but tend to be more independent and don't seem to crave the affection.
We don't de-horn our goats. We have had many goats and have never had any problems with aggression from our Fainting Goats or Oberhasli. We have not had any safety problems involving horns. It is true that they could get stuck in fencing but we have had more polled goats get their heads stuck than horned. There is always some goat on goat aggression but polled goats will butt heads regardless.
All kids are up to date on necessary shots and vaccines. We recommend that you have proper shelter and fencing prior to pickup. The new kids will need to be kept in a secure pen or stall for several days before going out to pasture. The kids can get through small holes in fencing (like the squares of ‘cattle panels’!). It is best to feed and socialize them in a secure environment so they don't escape and look for the rest of their herd. I recommend using a dog crate for transport with a disposable sheet on the bottom. Please email or call to set up an appointment to view and or pickup your new kids!
We have a few requirements we would like to make prospective buyers aware of up front as to avoid any confusions or problems that might arise.
We and our Vet would greatly appreciate 48-72 hours notice when a health certificate needs to be done. The Vet requires the street address that the goat is going to. Some states have special requirements, as well. And remember that the health certificate is only valid for 10 days after the Vet signs it, so any delays in pickup beyond that time will incur billing for a second health certificate.
Please ask about 4H discounts.
A 50% down payment is required to reserve any animal. This 50% down payment is non-refundable.
If you have any questions, concerns, or are wondering about something that we have not covered please do not hesitate to contact us.
