Breeding & Kidding Schedule
At this time, we do not practice artificial insemination (AI) or line breeding.
Our bucks and does are kept in different barns that open up to separate
fields. When we are sure a doe is in season, we enclose all the other
goats in the barns. The chosen buck is then taken to the doe in season,
where instinct and nature are allowed to take over. We hand breed our
goats, one pairing at a time. This ensures we know who the sire. Also to
calculate the precise due dates. Our goats typically kid within three days
of their estimated due date. Being there when each goat kids is a priority
on our farm.
Above is our current Breeding & Kidding Schedule. The table is updated
with the actual bred and expected due dates once we have the
information and/or are confident the doe is settled. Typically within 48
hours of all births, the above table plus the Current Kidding Season and
For Sale pages are updated with pictures and details of each kid.
To reserve a future kid, we ask that you contact us first for reservation availability. If
there is a pairing that you would prefer, and that doe has not been bred yet, we may
consider using your preferred buck instead.
If you would like to reserve a future doe or buck kid, we ask that you send a $75
deposit for each kid. Make all checks payable to Marlene D Wright, the balance
is due at time of pick up. If your choice of kid is not available, we will gladly refund
your deposit or transfer it to another kid if that is your choice.
We ship out of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Purchaser is
responsible for all shipping costs including the any required health tests and health
certificates, shipping crate and shipping fare prior to time of shipping.
We reserve the right to retain any of the listed kids for herd replacement.
We abide by the ADGA Recommended Trade Practices for Members (section XIX
in the 2012 ADGA Guidebook).
Kids are available for pick-up at two weeks of age. They will be disbudded, had their
first CD & T shot and selenium. If you want me to wean out your kid, it is an additional
$25. Weaned out kids will be picked up at 12 weeks old.
