I am in a bit of a dilemma. In late Feb. we put a 50% deposit down on a Oberhausli buckling & companion wether. Both were less than 2 weeks old. Both come from very fine bloodlines and we were very much looking forward to bringing them home. The agreement we had with the seller was she would leave them on their dams at least 3 months until they were weaned. She would contact us in mid/late May after they were weaned to bring them home. We were to get their papers at that time. I took notes as we were discussing things with the seller. It is now past the time we expected to bring home our little guys. I left a message for her (seller) to contact us so we could pick them up. I was concerned as to why she has failed to contact us. She returns my call and tell me a story I am very suspicious of. *She claims that I was to call her in April to pick them up. Well, in April they would not yet have been the 3 months before weaning that we had agreed on.(an age she advised) I also wrote the app. pick up date in my book while speaking to her and asked her to confirm it at that time to make sure there would be no misunderstanding. *She claims to have tried repeatedly over a 3 week period to call us and got a "this number has been disconnected and is no longer in service" message. She then said our little goats had become such a problem so she had to get rid of them. She also claims to have heard that we had filed for bankruptcy. We have NEVER filed bankruptcy. We have very strong opinions on the subject. We are not wealthy and have to carefully budget, but we always pay our bills and have an excellent credit rating. I think of our entire conversation this is what I found the most upsetting. Our phone has never been disconnected and we have had no problems with our line. I contacted several friends and family members. No one has had any problems getting thru to us. I contacted the telephone company. There is nor has been any problem with our line. We ourselves have had young bucks and wethers at this age and never had any problem with them. She has a really nice set up for goats. A large beautiful herd. I have a hard time imagining that 2 three month old goats could create so much of a problem for her. We had agreed on $150.00 for the buckling and $50.00 for the wether. We strongly suspect that she found she could get more out of them than our agreed upon price. We suspect the story was created to try and cover her butt. She has now agreed to sell us a year old buck she claims is of the same bloodlines for $150.00. She says we will get his papers with him and this is a deal for us as the other two would not have had papers. I had made sure that we were very clear on that and would be getting their papers when we first paid our deposit. We know that her goats are champion bloodlines are beautiful & healthy animals. This late into the season we may be hard pressed to find a quality buck to breed our girls to. We no longer have a buck and were unable to breed our girls last season so this is a major concern for us. Going ahead and purchasing this buck will assure that are girls are bred this year, but feel we have been lied to (certainly her "misunderstandings" were incorrect) We are not sure we want to have business dealing with this lady. How would you deal with a situation like this?
