Greetings! Me, Dh, and baby DS have been on our homestead in SW VA for 7 months. DH and I are both from the country and have been planning/researching a homestead lifestyle for several years. Nice to meet you all! We are soon going to be buying two registered alpine yearlings that just freshened. I think I am paying a good (fair) price for them but would like a little reassurance because GULP they are $350 each. Thats a lot of money for us! I'm scared!
