Hanson's Hideaway Farm reserves the right to retain any animal at any time for any reason.
By placing a deposit or purchasing an animal from us, you have indicated acceptance to the following agreement and terms:
Reservations are taken on a first come, first served basis. Preference will be given to those who participate in DHIA, Linear Appraisal and Showing.
No deposit is required to be placed on a reservation list for a specific breeding.
Wether reservations are a running waitlist and are priced at $125. Pricing for does start at $400 and is determined by Linear Appraisal score, genetics, milk production, milk stars, show wins, and/or any Champion, Superior Genetic or Elite titles.
Due to the flooding of the buck market, we STRONGLY feel that most bucks born on our farm will be wethered. We rarely offer bucks, unless the kid is out of a proven doe and sire. No intact buck will be offered from a first freshener. With that being said, if you are interested in a buckling out of a particular breeding, please let us know and we will gladly discuss keeping a buckling intact as a future herd sire for your herd.
A $100 non-refundable deposit for doelings & bucklings, and a $50 non-refundable deposit per wether will hold the kid(s) until weaning (about 8 -14 weeks of age). If for any reason, after the deposit is made, the animal becomes sick or injured the deposit will be refunded. If the buyer changes their mind, or cannot complete the sale for any reason, the deposit will not be refunded.
I also reserve the right to sell animals to what I feel are the best homes based on management and care. Deposits will be refunded for these reasons.
Once animals are born, we will contact those on the list in the order the reservations are received. Once you have been contacted by us, you will have 24 hours to place a non-refundable deposit on the animal of your choice. At the end of that 24 hour period, we will move to the next person on the list.
Paypal is the best method of payment, but if you need to pay by cash or check, let us know.
If an animal is not available from the breeding you are on a list for, you will be notified that your reservation cannot be filled.
Once the animal is reserved, it is the buyers responsibility to arrange pick up and pay animal purchase price in full. If the animal is not picked up by the arranged date, buyer will forfeit the deposit and the animal will be the sole property of Hanson's Hideaway Farm to retain or sell, unless other arrangements are made.
When picking up your animal, we request cash or PayPal for the balance due. Balances due must be paid in full before the animal leaves the farm.
Goats/Sheep are herd animals and MUST have another buddy to be happy and healthy.
We stand by the health of our animals and will provide proof of negative testing for CAE, CL, Johnes, Q-Fever and Brucellosis. Once an animal leaves our property, we are not responsible for the health of the animal unless there is a case of genetic defect. If that is the case, we require a letter from a licensed veterinarian at the buyers expense before a refund/replacement is given. We do our best to ensure happy and healthy animals for their owners.
Buyer has the option at the time of pick up to refuse the animal if they feel that the animal is not healthy. I cannot warrant the health status of a goat after it leaves my farm. All sales are final. Taking an animal off my farm implies that you have read and agreed to the sales agreement and are satisfied with the condition of the animal.
We do our best to place quality animals. We can not guarantee how an animal will mature, their full grown height, or how the doeling's mammary system will develop.
If you are an out-of-state buyer and need an animal shipped to you, I will do so out of Portland International Airport (PDX) out of Portland, Oregon. Buyers are responsible for all shipping costs (crates, health certificates, tests and transportation to airport). I am also willing to work with ground transportation services, but the buyer is responsible for finding a transport service and scheduling everything.
At Hanson's Hideaway, our kids are dam raised and receive daily human interaction of love, kindness, and trust. We feel this gives them the best opportunity to be well-socialized with both goats and humans. Kids are usually weaned and ready to go to their new home at
8-12 weeks old. All of our kids start off with their dams and at 2 weeks old, we introduce bottles. We pull kids from their dams at night for 12 hrs, bottle feed all kids with their dams milk in the morning, and reunite dam and kids during the day time. This insures that our does stay at a high milk production. We can usually send bottle raised kids home at 2 weeks old.
First CD&T kid vaccine comes in-vitro, as we vaccinatate our does 30 days before their due date. Kids receive their first CD&T vaccination at 10 weeks of age and again 21 days later. All kids will come disbudded (unless polled, this is done at one week of age), up to date on Coccidiosis prevention, dewormed (we use FirMeadows herbal dewormer), and have ADGA registration applications when they leave the farm. If sold as a wether, they will be humanely cut at 12-16 weeks of age.
If you want to be placed on a reservation list for a specific breeding, please CONTACT US HERE. Be sure to specify which breeding(s) you are interested in, your name, and a contact phone number and/or email address.
