I have a problem. Before I left for Colorado, I had put an ad on Craig's list to try and sell these triplet does. I got a call just a few hours later from a couple that were so excited and wanted all 3 and would come out right away to pay for them. They said they couldn't get them til the end of Aug. though, because their farm was not quite ready for the goats. I said that would be just fine as I was leaving for a week and didn't want the girl who was going to come milk Penelope to have to milk Sandy twice a day.
So now it's Sept. 4th. I have called a few times and left messages on the guys phone. I know it's his because he says his name on the voice mail. So this morning I called again. I said first that I hope they are ok. The wife had broken her ankle and was having to go to PT. I said that if I don't hear from them in a few days that I will start charging $5 /day /goat for feed and boarding, starting Sept. 1st. That's going to add up pretty fast to the amount they paid (in full, BTW) and then I will try to sell them again. I do have a copy of the bill of sale that states they will pick the 3 doelings up the end of Aug.
Has anyone had this happen? What did you do? Any other suggestions? I think I have done all I can do right now. I do hope they are ok and that they call and come get these girls.
