    I hope you aren't against meat buyers, lol... It's gonna be hard to sell them as anything but meat animals...

    You knew it...

    I sent you an e mail. I have to make quick run to Summit to mail out birds, have over $3,000 worth of birds sold that I haven't been able to ship.

    Just curious, but how much do Kiko goats sell for? And it's spelled "Boer" goats, not "bora" (people will be getting confused).

    Mygoat is right, if you raise meat goats, you need to expect most of them to go for meat. I wouldn't sell goats for pets other than to a few very carefully selected people, as they tend to end up neglected or abused. If you want to be sure an animal is going to be taken care of, it needs to have a real purpose in life, not just be a pet (I know, there are a few exceptions even then, but definitely the bulk of neglected and abused animals are pets).
