I plove my goats, and while I understand the breeding means sometimes having to sell things, when events like this happen it makes me think about ever selling a goat again.
I sold a beautiful doe soon after she had quads and was milking over a gallon and a half a day in mid April. the following picture is what she looked like when I sold her followed by what she looked like when they returned her to me Monday night. I was horrified, and so glad that I liked her doeling enough to contact them about getting her back because somehow the outcross to my good Buck was fantastic. I understand that sometimes things happen, but she weighed185 lb when she left, and I bet soaking wet she might be 110 right now
:hit : :duc

I can understand being sleep deprived. at least yours is for semi good reason family. what type of hay do your goats love?

:ep Did they just not feed her? Didn't bother to test and treat for parasites? At least she's back where she will return to health.
they said she just didn't want to eat, but they had to have disrupted her rumin or something because she has always been a good eater. they finally wormed her July 15th. At least that's what they said. She's always been very parasite resistant, but resistant like I told them does not mean never susceptible especially after a major change and the horrific weather we've had this year.

That's so sad...people can be terrible :eek:
What was there reason for returning her?
I'm glad she'll be taken care of now though.
I actually contacted them and offered them a breeding to my buck out of a national champion stock if I could have one of the kids because she had such a fantastic doeling this year. instead of me breeding her, I got her back. Obviously, she's not in any position when she showed up to be bred anytime soon. I'm glad I have her though, and hopefully I can get her back to health.
