Know I should not let this up set me, but it does,, alot!! We have been looking for the perfect dog,, and some gentle polled Steers to eat the grass down. So I go to the animals registry web site,, and email folks in my area, and ask if they have such and such, what is the price of the animal,, what I plan to do...etc..etc.. Half the time no one will write back to let you know wither or not they have any animals for sale. Couple of them said they don't sell anything to anyone that emails them about their animals. That made me mad, because got the information of their breed Registry pages. Why list their email if they are not going to respect the person emailing?? Just don't understand that. Then you get, no farm people are allowed to buy my animals because they can't take care of them. Like what,, passing judgment before one sees my place is a little hum... how would I put it politely?? My Old & new Vet would be more than happy to let them know my animals get excellent care. But they don't even give you a chance. Even contact people with Steers for sale,, and I just want pets (well ..hubby might eat one at some point,, if we get a grumpy one that is), not looking to eat them. I send them my web pages when they request them. Then they do not email back,, I email again,, and they say they decided the steers are not for sale. Like what's up with that? Granted we just moved to a bigger Farm,, but Geess..... Is it really getting that bad out there?? I just am confused,, and have no idea what to do? When I raised and breed my sheep, chickens and ducks,, I always emailed the same day, to at least respond in a polite manner, let them know if I any thing for sale, how much, or that I did not have any thing at this time, but there is a waiting list. But I would never treat people as I am getting treated. Am I stupid, old fashioned, out dated?? What???
