I think my point was missed. Im not bashing here im telling the truth. I bought some goats that were papered from a big Texas breeder and later find that the papers were falsified. One mom was supposed to be good south african stock and she wasnt. Same thing with a few of the others. I find this out because I go to buy other goats and am talkin with the guy that says he sold those goats to the other guy a few months back. When I try and do somthin about it they both get really quiet and change storys on me. And not just texas, I buy from some big farm up in missouri and they tell me they sell all over but some of my goats were onetime theres to. No way theyd back me up in court either. So i get a situation of trying to sell these goats for the same price i payed knowing that the papers are wrong. The ibga tells me to get lost. They wont help because of the people that are involved. The people i buy from are members in good standing in the ibga. So the ways i see it are that you either shut up and be a member in good standing with the ibga or try to get it straight and be outcast and blacklisted. They are all a bunch of friends that will stand up for each other even tho they know that they are screwing somebody. I call it greed and its going to ruin the industry.
