We enjoy talking with our potential buyers about what you are looking for. We strive to fit the right animal with the right home so be sure to let me know what you are looking for and what improvements you would like to see in kids from your Standing Stone dairy goat. Herd health and proper management is very important to us. All kids sold will be disbudded, tattooed, vaccinated for CD/T, and supplemented with Bo-Se injection before leaving the farm. Coccidiosis preventative is also given to kids periodically until weaned. From time to time, older bucks and does may also be available for sale so please ask if you are interested in an animal of any age.
Prices quoted are for pre-ordered kids picked up from the farm or shipped between 2 - 4 weeks of age if bottle fed or 12 - 14 weeks if dam raised. We will continue to offer multiple purchase discounts and repeat buyer discounts.In addition, we offer discounts to show and/or LA homes.To reserve your kid, a $100 deposit is required paid via check, Visa, Mastercard or Paypal with remaining balance due within 10 days of notification of birth. We ask that you pick a first and second choice kid in the event that your 1st choice is not available. If we are unable to fill your order or if the animal does not meet our standards of quality, this deposit may be transferred to another kid purchase or semen, but deposits on cancelled orders are never refunded.
Please know that we do not keep all the buck's that are born. Our standards are very high for a reason. Buck kids are usually castrated at or before 10 weeks of age if not pre-ordered as barn space is limited. Understand that we usually do not keep "extra" buck kids around once show season is in full swing, so please consider pre-ordering and/or contacting us early. Buck kids are only conditionally available ("CA") from first fresheners. Before a buck kid from a first freshener is sold as a breeding buck, his dam must be evaluated in milk for a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks. We reserve the right to obtain 20 straws of semen from any buck we sell at the cost of collection.
Although we encourage you to pick your kid up from the farm so that you may view related animals, we realize this may not always be possible. Let us know your needs ahead of time and we can make the necessary airline arrangements to ship your new kid to you out of the Nashville, TN (BNA) airport. All shipping costs, including health papers, shipping crate and shipping fees are to be paid by the buyer prior to time of shipping. We will provide ADGA registration papers on all breeding animals.
Deposits are a guarantee that I will hold that animal until the agreed upon pick-up date AND your guarantee that you will buy that animal at the agreed upon price. Deposits on cancelled orders are not refundable. We require a $100 deposit per animal. Once a deposit is placed on an animal, you will be notified upon birth and the balance is due within 10 days of notification. The goat must be picked up within 2 - 4 weeks of age if a bottle baby or at 12 -16 weeks if dam raised based on our decision. This decision will always have the best interest of the goat in mind, as sometimes I am not comfortable with a goat leaving here on a preset date. After you are notified of the available time frame for your animals pick up, if pick up is not made, or detailed arrangements not agreed upon by us the animal may be offered for sale again or a boarding fee assessed at the rate of $4/day for dry does, $5/day for bucks. Cash, money orders, VISA, MASTERCARD, Paypal and checks are accepted for deposits. If your balance has not paid before the pick-up date due to a prior arrangement, checks are not accepted at that time.
