Ok, I'm gonna go look at another goat early next week. The guy was recommended to me by a couple of folks. When I called, he didn't have anything for sale until after kidding... After talking a while, I asked if he would consider selling a doe before she kids, and he said it would be expensive, around $350-$400. Now to me, that sounds reasonable for a registered 2 yr. old registered nubian doe that has been shown locally and won first place at county fair last year. AND she's due to kid in May. Anyway, IS that a reasonable price? I am really considering it. I had liked the Sannens from my reading, but I am sure I would love a Nubian, too. My other doe is half Sable, half Nubian anyway. The other thing is that I am sure it would give me good access to this guy's buck stock. He breeds for dairy show quality, good udders and milkers, so I think it might be worth it just for having him as a contact/mentor. Advise or reality check me before I go look, because I am an overly excited noodlehead about this goat project! It did not help that I went and looked at a friend's newborn kids yesterday.
