Any kid purchased will be picked up on their weaning date or will be charged $1.50 per day for boarding costs. Any other animal purchased will be picked up within one (1) week of purchase (unless other arrangements are made) and will be charged $1.50 per day for boarding costs.

All breeding/show stock will be sold with application for ABGA registration and/or USBGA if appropriate. Some may be already registered.
Should anything happen to an animal upon which a deposit has been made while the animal is still in our possession, the buyer will have first choice of other animals for sale at or near the original selling price. If there are no similar animals available we will refund buyer’s deposit. What is considered a “similar” animal will be at our discretion.
We “GUARANTEE” all animals to be sound, healthy and free of disease (including CL & CAE) as of the sale date. A Vet’s invoice and/or autopsy report will be required stating the animal had a pre-existing condition which was unavoidable for refunds. Animal must be returned if alive at Buyer’s expense in order to receive any refund. All testing and the vet certificate are the responsibility of the Buyer. If tests are positive for a pre-existing condition, we will refund the purchase price. This guarantee does not apply to any animals bought and sold where it has been disclosed by the Seller to the Buyer that the animal has/had a problem (i.e. teat structure, bite, pigment, a previous healed injury or illness, etc.) and the Buyer still desires to purchase the animal.
