companion needed for Kevin
« on: December 07, 2011, 04:41:23 pm »
Kevin has just lost his companion of ten years and we are looking for a replacement.  We live in Argyll, we have plenty of room to roam and good housing.  We have had Kevin since he was a kid and have had pet goats for 18 years.  We don't mind boy or girl but we are not in to milking and if male must be gelded.  We are looking ideally for a mature, fun loving character who will come walks and like being around people.  Would be happy to consider two.

I have got a male senior kid... almost a buckling.... he is 13mths old.   Fully castrated but does have small horns.

He is called Clive !!.... bottle reared from 6hrs old, very friendly and loves everybody... leads well..... he is saanen x nubian.

The only problem is I am close to Exeter.... couldn't be further apart !!!!  My tel no is 01647 231456

If you can arrange transport then you are welcome to him.... there are transport companies around who specialise in goat movement.... one is Gordon George... tel no  07768 360331 or 01491 681619.   Gordon does all my transport work around UK

I have two wether kids -  brothers, 8 months old.  They are Old English's and horned. Both very friendly, like being petted, fed sultanas etc.
I am in Cumbria so transport not impossible......
Here they are. / the boys are on the stone bench, mum at the side gives you an idea of full-grown size.

Dear Wytsend, thanks for offer.  Clive ideal but distance is a problem.  I shall wait & see what next couple of days brings.  All best Susan

East yorkshire - my neighbour has offered me a sanaan type goat no horns free as they no longer can keep her  if you are interested - I dont know her health status but she looks fit enough, and seems quite friendly if that is any help - I dont wont any more goats at the moment so my only other suggestion for them was to eat her!!
