We accept NON REFUNDABLE retainers of the animal(s) selected and decided upon by seller. No exception when kids are paid for in advanced (via retainer) and on the ground. Some leeway given for unborn kids. No exceptions for refunds on retainer for kids held with NO DISBUDS.
The retainer guarantees the hold for that animal(s) to the buyer and seller will not market the animal(s) for other buyers during the hold time. The non refundable retainer covers board costs associated with animal during the hold period.
It is the responsibility of the buyer that the buyer coordinates a reasonable time of pickup with the seller. There are few exceptions to the maximum 10 day hold.
NON REFUNDABLE retainers are not returned under many circumstances including and not limited to: buyer backing out for any reason, buyer's lack of finances/resources/interest, buyer's change of heart or anything of the matter that would affect the board costs and loss (and potential sale/interest of animal(s) to other possible buyers) of sale of the animal(s) to the seller. Some exclusions apply- in case of unborn kids.
Refunds on retainers are only given if something were to happen on seller's side (ex: spoken animals come down with illness or succumb to death during the given hold time). In this instance, the retainer can be applied to another animal of seller's interest.
If buyer puts a deposit down for several animals, the retainer will be redistributed upon the spoken animals and the full, original retainer will not necessarily be returned in full if total hold is canceled by buyer (buyer can redistribute the paid retainer to the purchase price of total other animals).
Kids that are unborn with retainers have the ability for refund of retainers IF buyers inform RCR by at least 30 days before expected kid dates. Expected kid dates are posted in the breeding schedule.
RCR, the Seller, has the right to refuse the sale of animals to any persons for any reasons. Seller has the right to deny or refuse persons from entering property at any time.
If Buyer extends past the 10 day hold, either 2 things can happen. Either the retainer is forfeited (risk of loss and board) (see above) or we charge $5/day per animal held. All fees due upon pick up.
There are some alternatives that may be discussed before monetary exchange via RCR to Buyer, such as bundling kids for pickup.
Prices to hold kids until weaning depend on price of milk/board and time the kid is held.
Seller will discuss prices per week or day to hold.
Buyer must pay for the goat upfront.
If buyer cancels, the original terms and conditions apply and the buyer does not get their amount back- neither board costs.
If goat dies or injured while in our care, the purchase price of the goat is returned but the board costs (hold fees/milk fees) are not refunded.
Hold fee for 2022 season is $5/day until pickup on kids until delayed pickup or weaning
We only accept Cash, Paypal Venmo, and Check (7 days before pickup).
