When I sell something I never want to see it again because usually if I do, then I generally have to give the customer their money back. A returned product usually means a loss of money and a loss of a potential return customer.
Yesterday a customer we sold some goats to several months ago called and asked the wife to come over because they were having some problems with the goats. The momma goat had a bad infection in her utter and could not nurse the babies. Luckily this was not any nanny goats we sold them.
They were fed up with all the problems they were having trying to raise goats and told the wife to just take them all. They even gave back the goats we sold them in the first place.
I hate the fact they were having so many problems and I hate the fact their problems are now my problems and we now have two bottle babies that will take more money to raise than we can ever get out of them and a nanny that can not be bred again. The other goats they gave us might be able to make up for the loss though. I already sold them once.
The people said they want to raise goats later when they move to their bigger farm down South and I don't blame them one bit. I went over to their house a few months back to help deliver some babies only to have it end with putting the nanny down. It was a bad deal.
They also tried to give us a pig. They have been trying to give me this pig for several months and I just don't want a old pot belly pig that has an attitude.
It is to hot to go out and take pictures of the new babies but I will have some on here tomorrow.
