I went yesterday and got a brush and clippers (yay for second hand stores!) . The lady told me she would trim her hooves before she brings her, but I have been watching video's and will check her over really good. Went in and priced feed and minerals for her, will pick those up Tuesday.. She should be bringing her over by Thursday (next week) I am going to talk to her again and see if there is possibly another goat (wether or doeling) she can bring instead, if not I might be looking for a wether I can purchase?? Your thoughts on a goat not of her herd meeting her here??
When I first saw her pictures (she is a couple hours away) I thought she looked alittle rough compared to what I have seen goats look like. Told hubs right away she would need a trimming and cleaning up, good feed/hay and minerals.. I take pride in my animals and although I don't know this womens situation from the way she talked it sounds like she has more than she is handling efficiently. .
Oh and my brother raises goats too, his daughter does 4-H and wanted a rabbit, I have one she can learn on, young female that I am saving for her, in trade if this doe has any bucks my bro will band them for me :) I was at his farm last summer and my husband and I helped him band a few of his..
