I field tons of emails, messages and phone calls from prospective goat buyers on a daily basis.
We spend a lot of time socializing our goats! Why do we do this? It's just a goat, right?
If you can't touch a goat how do you check it's famacha?
If you can't touch a mini nubian goat how do you copper bolus it?
If your Boer got has a worm load and needs anemic supportive care, how do you do it? At some point, most goats get worms.
If your baby goat falls and hurts it leg, how do you check it or give pain medicine?
As a breeder, we feel it is important to be able to handle your goats. I may not have the cheapest goats for sale but you can handle them and they are healthy. It's rut season here at Cotton Bean Goat Farm and I have a pen of bucks that will headbutt each other over a doe. I walk in, they stop whatever they are doing and run up for love. Are you afraid to get near your buck? I'm not!
By the way, this is a picture of Laverne our Boer doe, who I bought with a worm load but didn't know it at the time. I almost lost this boer doe goat because she wouldn't let me touch her. I did loose her sister. If you are going to breed and sale goats do it responsibly. Btw, she kidded this month with the most beautiful black headed doeling.
We send home a information packet with all our baby goats. Why? I wish I had been given this information when we first started raising goats. We encourage anyone who purchases one of our goats to call or message if they need anything or have questions. Go buy a auction goat and hold it while it takes it's last breath! This will rip your heart out if you care at all!
