Sales Policy

Payments​


Deposits are non-refundable, except at the sole discretion of 3 Whimsy Acres.  If a deposit on an unborn kid is not filled, the buyer may choose to have their deposit refunded, moved to another available breeding, or carried over to the next kidding season (for one year, however prices may change for the following year).

Any goat/s purchased must be paid for in full when picked up. If you need a different type of payment plan, this MUST be agreed upon before a deposit is sent. If your goat/s cannot be picked up on or before the date agreed upon, a boarding contract may be created. The rate of boarding is $5 per dayper animal. If the goat/s are not picked up within one week (7 days) of agreed upon pickup date, the goat/s will be put back up for sale and any deposit/s received will not be refunded.


3 Whimsy Acres reserves the right to refuse a sale for any reason, at any time, on any animal. This can be done up until the time the Bill of Sale is signed. If we cancel a sale, deposits paid will be refunded. 3 Whimsy Acres reserves the right to retain any reserved animal for any reason. If this is done, payments will be refunded.


All Sales are Final.


In the event BUYER chooses to sell the goats in the future, 3 Whimsy Acres requests first right of refusal. In the event we cannot purchase an animal back, we will do our best to help you find an excellent home for the goat/s.


We accept checks (must have time to clear the bank before animal leaves) made payable to Lauren Valleroy, PAYPAL, and cash. If you wish to pay via PAYPAL you will be responsible for any transaction fees associated with that form of payment. Balance of payment on your goat or goats will be due upon notification that they are ready to leave for their new home and must be paid in full prior to the time of transport.


All shipping costs (transportation, heath certificates, testing, crates etc.) are the buyer’s responsibility.


Health Guarantees


All 3 Whimsy Acres’ goats are guaranteed healthy at time of sale. 3 Whimsy Acres will disclose any previous health issues to the best of our knowledge.

3 Whimsy Acres have been tested and found negative for CL, Johne’s, and CAE. You can see our test results HERE. In the unlikely event that the goat dies or becomes ill at 3 Whimsy Acres before it is fully paid for, the buyer may choose to have their money refunded or moved to another available animal.


3 Whimsy Acres is happy to have goats checked over by a veterinarian before sale at buyer’s expense. Should the veterinarian not find the animal healthy, the buyer’s money shall be refunded.


3 Whimsy Acres does not guarantee health of any goats once they leave our property and are outside of our control. Should the animal die or become gravely injured while on our premises, and in our care, any payments will be refunded. Stress is very common in both kids and adults of all ages when moved from one place to another. Illness, disease, and in rare cases death can occur if the animal is not properly handled or treated. 3 Whimsy Acres will not be responsible for stress/illness/sickness of any kind after the animal leaves our farm. For that reason all sales are final once the animal leaves our property.


3 Whimsy Acres does not guarantee height, conformation, or milking ease.


Reservations


No deposit is required to reserve an unborn doe or buck kid.


A $150 deposit is required to hold any kid that has already been born.


A 50% deposit of asking price is due to hold any adult animal.


Registration


All of our adult goats are registered with AGDA, AGS, and NDGA or MGR depending on breed. Each doe and buck kid sold will be provided with the required paperwork for registering with the associated agencies. Registration fees will be paid by the buyer. Kids older than 3 months will be registered with ADGA/MGR. 


Disbudding


Goats will NOT be disbudded by Whimsy Acres unless otherwise agreed upon with the buyer. If buyer wants their goats disbudded, this must be agreed upon prior to receipt of deposit of the goats and payment in full will be due. 

Disbudding will be performed at the buyer’s expense prior to 2 weeks of age. 3 Whimsy Acres does not guarantee against scurs (small horn growths). 


Goats marked and sold as “polled” (naturally without horns) are guaranteed against horn growth.


Sold Stock


Goats sold will be accompanied with registration/transfer paperwork (if applicable), sales agreement/bill of sale, invoice and health profile. Health profiles are generated using HerdBoss. These files can be electronically transferred in the HerdBoss system at the buyer’s request (not yet available).
