    I would say so. Especially if it is a doeling.

    Yes, around here a bottle baby goat can be sold for a good amount of money. (Just cuz that is what everyone wants.) Is it tame?
    ETA Here any way...

    Depends.

    I sell my miniature goat bucklings/wethers for $75.00 - BUT they are NMGA registered, have all their shots, have been through 2-3 weeks of daily cocci prevention, are disbudded...etc.

    What exactly IS it? Doeling/buckling?

    My choice of doeling or buckling. Not disbudded, but vaccinated.
    Not registered.
    Thanks for all the comments.

    Everyone around here sells for 150+... [​IMG] Every so often I will see one for under 100. Maybe there is something wrong with my area...shortage of goats maybe [​IMG]

    I am in Florida. I thought the price was OK, but I hate hearing after the fact---"oh you paid too much" or "you shouldn't have done that deal" I look at it this way if you like/love it--it doesn't matter the price.
    Thanks again
