Pacific Northwest

The time has come for me to sell my Goats. My wife does not like to care for them when I am away. She wanted to go to Arizona while I was gone
hunting and that spelled the end for the Goats.
I have a 2 1/2 yr old registered Boer Buck and a couple of nice registered Does.. One of the girls has trips that are 2 months old. One doeling and two soon to be weathers. I have all the stuff needed to care for them as well. Kid box, disbudding iron etc. I also have a tilt table that needs some work. Anyway, I'm not in a hurry and would be willing to make a pretty good deal to the right person. Anyone that wants these animals will have to convince me that they will be well taken care of. I suppose I could quit hunting if necessary. I'm in Corvallis Oregon . Thanks, Ken kdonalds@samhealth.org

NOT that I'm interested....but, what were you thinking about as far as money? And, did you want them to go together or are you willing to split them up?

Like I said, I'm NOT interested.

What type of "registered does"? Health status? Would you ship?

Asking from 15 miles down the road, but very poor at the moment. How much?

I just can't help but wonder what could possibly be in Arizona that is more important than having the HONOR of being able to help your husband out when he needs you the most *and* making him happy. I'm not even remotely religious and I know the definition of the word Helpmeet. I'd sure be lookin' for the old lady's "attitude adjustment" button if I were you. JMHO.

My thought is that the way the economy is going, those trips to Arizona may soon become prohibitively expensive, and the goats might become important to feed your family. JMO. If we had more land, I might be interested (your're about five hours from us), but as it is I only have room for my dairy goats.

I truly doubt he was looking for commentary on the state of his marriage or the economy.
