Buying Boer Goats on the Internet

What can you gain by using the Internet, instead of the more traditional avenues to purchase a Boer goat?
You are not restricted to only Boer goats available in your immediate area.
You are able to look for a Boer goat anywhere in the world at any time of day.
You save money by not having to make long distance calls until you're ready to deal.
Instead of spending time travelling from one farm to another farm, you can view more animals from the comfort of your home.
You are able to do a lot of research you may not have otherwise done.
You can take your time.
You meet interesting people you might otherwise never got to know.

But in many ways, buying a Boer goat over the Internet is like buying a Boer goat any other way. You still need to:
Do your homework before you buy.
Ask questions about breeding (genetics), characteristics, health, and temperament.
Request additional pictures from different angels.
View the photo with a critical eye, but remember most of the photos are taken of Boer goats who don’t' necessarly pose pretty. If anything bothers you, address the issue in your next email or phone call.
If you are serious and can arrange it, go see the animal before making a commitment.
If you are unable to view the animal in person before making a commitment, ask other Internet friends if they are familiar with the animal, farm, or seller.
When you find a Boer goat you are genuinely interested in, send a deposit.
