No deposit is required to reserve an unborn doe or buck kid.
A $100 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.
Deposits are non-refundable, except at the sole discretion of Guiding Light Farm. 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 $3 per day. 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.
Guiding Light Farm 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/Transfer is signed. If we cancel a sale, deposits paid will be refunded. Guiding Light Farm 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, Guiding Light Farm 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.
All of our adult goats are registered with AGDA and possibly AGS and NDGA. 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.
All Guiding Light Farm goats are guaranteed healthy at time of sale. Guiding Light Farm will disclose any previous health issues to the best of our knowledge.
All adult goats at Guiding Light Farm have been tested and found negative for Johne’s and CAE. You can see our test results HERE. CL testing is not conclusive unless there has been an abscess. We have not had any abscesses so we have chosen not to waste money on a test that isn’t helpful. In the unlikely event that the goat dies or becomes ill at Guiding Light Farm before it is fully paid for, the buyer may choose to have their money refunded or moved to another available animal.
Guiding Light Farm is happy to have goats checked over by a vet before sale at buyer’s expense. Should the vet not find the animal healthy, the buyer’s money shall be refunded.
Guiding Light Farm does not guarantee height, conformation, or milking ease. Guiding Light Farm does guarantee the animal will be free of any disqualifying faults at time of purchase.
Goats will be disbudded prior to 2 weeks of age at the expense of the Guiding Light Farm unless otherwise agreed upon by buyer and noted in the sales contract. Guiding Light Farm does not guarantee against scurs (small horn growths). If buyer does not want goats disbudded, this must be agreed upon prior to receipt of deposit of the goats and payment in full will be due. Goats marked and sold as “polled” (naturally without horns) are guaranteed against horn growth.
