Frequently Asked Question
Can I come to look at your animals?
We encourage all prospective buyers to come and visit us here at Ginny Boer Goats. We love to show and talk about our animals. We do not "dress up" the animals for pictures and videos. What you see is what you get, and sometimes the pictures and videos do not do the animals justice.
Do I need an appointment to look at your animals?
Yes, we do require an appointment to look at our animals. To schedule a visit, please contact us via our website ("Contact Us" / “Let’s Chat”), Email, or Facebook. We typically respond to all messages within 24 hours.
What if we can’t come and look at the animals?
We understand that sometimes a visit to come and look at the animals is not possible. If that is the case, we will do our best to answer any questions you might have about the animal. We will also take additional pictures and videos upon request if there is a specific angle that you are looking for. We have even been known to do video calls between a buyer and the animal. Our goal is to make sure you are getting the animal that you want, and that we get a happy customer!
Do you disbud your wethers?
Many FFA and 4-H shows require wethers to be disbudded or tipped. We have chosen to not disbud our animals. We would be happy to work with you to show you how to tip your animal's horns.
What should I do when I find an animal I would like to purchase?
Once you decide to purchase one of our animals, please contact us to make sure the animal is still available. We try to keep the website up to date with the animals that are available, but sometimes life gets in the way, and we find ourselves a little bit behind.
