Payment Terms:

A deposit of $200 is requested to hold a kid for you until it is weaned, usually 10 to 12 weeks. After 3 ½ months of age we begin to charge a $2.00 per day boarding fee to hold the kid for you unless other written arrangements have been made. When a deposit has been received, a written receipt will be mailed to buyer with indication of balance due prior to pick-up. Once a kid has been selected for purchase, it will be marked "On Hold" on the website. If deposit is not sent within 10 days, the sale will be canceled.

All animals and other fees relating to that animal must be paid in full prior to pick-up or before being shipped. Payment with personal checks can be accepted but you must allow 10 days for check to clear. With prior written arrangements, the balance due may be paid at pick-up. In this case, payment needs to be cash or money order only; no personal checks please.

Goats not picked up within 10 days of scheduled pick-up date will revert back to being property of Moonlight Farms and no refund will be given on any money paid unless other written arrangements have been made.

Moonlight Farms retains the right to retract the sale of any animal if there are reservations regarding the safety and well-being of the animal. In this case, your full deposit amount will be returned via certified mail with delivery confirmation.

Purchase Price Includes:

Vaccination for C, D & T at 4 weeks and booster at 8 weeks
Worming with oral ivermectin
Hooves trimmed and maintained

Myotonic Goat Registry (MGR) Registration Certificate and Transfer Memo will be given to the new buyer. The buyer will be responsible for transferring the registration into their name. An application for joining and other information about the MGR will be provided.

If the buyer prefers to register with the International Fainting Goat Association (IFGA), the Registration Application will be completed and signed as required by seller. It will be the buyer's responsibility to register the goat with the IFGA. Buyer will still be given the MGR Registration Certificate and Transfer Memo.

Documentation of health records, date of birth, etc. as well as photos of the kids.
Testing status of sire and dam for CAE, CL and Johne's
Sample of feed and hay so that there is not an abrupt change in the animal's diet
General information regarding goat care that includes information on worming, coccidia treatment and so forth

Any other health tests and/or health certificate can be done by our veterinarian at the buyer's expense.

Health Papers:

Each state has its own requirements as far as what tests are needed to bring animals into the state. The fines are high if you are stopped and do not have health papers on your stock. You can check with your vet as to what is needed, or visit the following website:
http://www.aphis.usda.gov/import_export/animals/animal_import/animal_imports_states.shtml
to see what tests are required to enter your state. All health certificates and tests are the responsibility of the buyer. Usually there is a farm visit charge in addition to the charges for the actual testing.

Goat Carriers:

Buyers are expected to make our goats comfortable and safe during their ride to new homes. We ask that you use a crate large enough for the size goat being transported or a stock trailer/truck with a cap so the animal can ride comfortably. If the carrier is to be outside in a truck bed, make sure the goat will have protection from wind, rain, sun, cold temperatures, etc. Carriers should have several layers of newspaper and then a layer of straw to help soak up urine while en route. Under no circumstances will a goat leave our farm tied in the back of an open bed truck. We reserve the right to refuse to sell or allow transportation of our goats with those that we feel are not responsible for the safety of our animals.

Transportation:

Occasionally we may be able to make deliveries. This is the exception rather than the rule, however. Trying to schedule a trip when you own 21 goats that need to be cared for in your absence is difficult.
Depending on size, goats are either transported in travel crates or brought in the back of our truck which has an enclosed camper shell. They have access to water and hay while traveling. All goats transported over the Virginia state line will need a health certificate for the state the goats will be residing in. We will NOT transport out of state without a health certificate paid for by the buyer.

We charge $ 1.50 per mile one-way for the first goat transported. If there is more than one animal being purchased, there is a charge of $25.00 for each additional animal. We reserve the right to change our pricing for delivering (based on rising fuel costs) prior to any deposit being paid.

This is a livestock transporter we have used in the past:
