Our Guarantee to You: We guarantee our goats to be healthy and disease-free when they leave our farm. If an animal you purchase from us is deemed by a veterinarian to have a disease or illness that was with them when bought from us we will gladly refund the purchase price and take the goat back with a signed statement by the veterinarian for up to 30 days after the goat leaves our farm. All veterinarian costs are the buyers responsibility. We offer all registered does and bucks with completed ADGA registration, you are responsible for transfer paperwork and fees. We also send the goat with AGS application, you are responsible for completing the registration and transferring the goat into your name. We are happy to offer a registration and transfer service for all goats that we sell for an additional $50.00 per goat and your registration papers will be mailed to you by ADGA and AGS.
Purchase Details: We require a non-refundable retainer fee of half the purchase price for each animal being held (for animals already born) to be applied toward the purchase price balance. This retainer fee will be refunded if anything should happen to the animal before it leaves our farm, but we will keep the retainer fee if the buyer fails to pick up the animal in the time specified to cover our expenses and time in locating a new home. To reserve a spot prior to kidding, simply send us an email. We will contact you at the email provided to alert you that kids have been born from that breeding and you will have 48 hours to respond with a decision and pay the retainer before the goat is offered to the next person in line. Kidding dates are estimated on our Breeding Schedule.
All balances are due when the goat leaves our farm. If you do not pick your goat up by the time specified in the purchase agreement, a $5/day boarding charge per goat reserved will be applied to your balance for a period of 1 week (7 days). After that time you will forfeit the retainer fee and the goat will be put back up for sale.
It is our practice at Nigerian Meadows to disbud all our baby goats by 2 weeks of age. When disbudding there is always the chance of scurs growing. If you see scurs growing (they look like thin horns and may be oddly shaped), you may bring the kid back to us to re-burn the area. This must be done as soon as possible after noticing the growth! We do NOT guarantee your goat will not get scurs, and any risks involved with scur removal after the goat has been bought and removed from our farm is the buyers responsibility.
All reserved kids must be picked up between 7-8 weeks of age unless other arrangements are made. Kids will have been dis-budded before leaving our farm unless otherwise requested. We do not vaccinate our goats, but after the full price has been paid and the goat is yours we will teach you how to administer them or suggest you find a veterinarian that will have epinephrine on hand to do it at your expense. We de-worm with herbs, but upon request we can administer a chemical dewormer, as well as offer Bo-se (selenium and vit. E shot) and copper bolus per request or if we think it is in the best interest of the goat.
When banding a kid to become a wether we administer Tetanus anti-toxin to guard against infection. This procedure must be done as late as possible to allow the urinary tract to develop, so we do this just before the goat leaves our farm. You may choose to bring the kid back at a later date to be wethered if you would like it to be older, but we will retain the paperwork until the kid has been brought back for the procedure.
All balances are due when the goat leaves our farm. If you do not pick your goat up by the time specified in the purchase agreement, a $5/day boarding charge will be applied to your balance for a period of 1 week (7 days). After that time you will forfeit the retainer money and the goat will be put back up for sale. Goats are herd animals and will be sold with another goat unless you have other goats already. We price our goats based on conformation, milk, and awards earned.
Refunds: We cannot accept a goat back after it leaves our farm other than per our guarantee against disease or genetic defect for up to 30 days after purchase. We keep a healthy herd, and cannot guarantee care and health of the animal once it leaves other than previously stated for this reason. You may, at your expense, have a veterinarian come out to inspect a goat you intend to purchase. Despite every effort to prevent it, goats may experience shipping fever after leaving our farm. We cannot insure against it, but we are available if you have any questions after adopting one of our goats. Should we decide not to offer a particular goat for sale, you may use your retainer fee toward another goat or choose to have it refunded to you. Any goat paid for but not picked up in the time specified in the purchase agreement will remain our property and all monies will be forfeited to Nigerian Meadows.
