goats for sale

Every once in a while someone contacts me through the blog
to ask if I sell cashmere goats.



Yes and no. I don't breed with an eye to selling stock - if I did, I would be routinely breeding all my does, which I don't - so I rarely have goats to sell. But right now I do. So I thought I'd just mention it here in case anyone is interested or would like to pass the information along.

I know each of my goats very well, and am happy to provide my opinion on which goats would be suitable for a particular home and "job"...such as invasive plant control, giving a handspinner some very nice fiber to play with, or providing companionship and entertainment.

My email address is linked in my profile, and is the easiest way to send specific questions about my goats. For general information about cashmere and caring for cashmere goats, this link to the Cashmere Goat Association website is very helpful.

Thanks!

    1. It isn't an easy decision for me, but sometimes I really think a particular pair or small group could be happier in a different situation. There's a reason I call this place The Cloud Harvest Cashmere Social Club!

  2. Sad to see any of your herd go, but I understand animal management.

    1. Yes. If I had more land here, I would have more goats.

  3. If it was up to the goats, then I think they'd be thinking similar for land as they look into the woods.

  4. I should clarify - the goats would need more open land, for browsing. But even if I wanted to clear woodland for them, there is no more land to be had in my present location. The only abuttor with acreage - and it is forested -
    will not sell an inch.

  5. Of course whoever buys your goat is getting so much more than just a goat. I love that you added "for companionship" because these guys really do worm their way into your heart. If I lived in the country ... (one day!)

    1. You are very welcome - I love comments, too :)
      My own blogging/blogreading has been in chunks with gaps between lately, so I understand! And your comment made me wonder if people realize that I usually respond to previous comments the next time I put up a new post...maybe I'd better mention that!

  6. Oh, it's so hard selling animals, especially goats! Here's hoping for excellent homes for them.

    1. Thanks, it is hard as you know first-hand. Personally, though, I wouldn't say "especially" goats; quality of life is pretty much the foundation of all decision-making here.

  7. I know that you'll find them good homes... and will love them no matter what.

    I haven't been feeling great since our trip - so I've been falling behind on blogs. Sorry to be absent.
