Our Magic Apple Life
|Posted by Cara on June 9, 2015 at 2:00 PM|
This last Sunday we had the pleasure of making our furthest shipment with our goats. We flew Magic Apple MAD Fallawater and Magic Apple MAH Fearns Pippin to Kona, HI.
Hawai'i is very rigid with it import protocal and animals must be very healthy and are met upon arrival with an inspection to be able to stay on the island.. This has been an adventure and I'm so happy and blessed to have successfully flown these two over the ocean to their new home, which I'm sure we are all jealous of, LOL!!
Here is a bit from Heidi, their new owner in Hawai'i:
"I am so impressed with these girls! I am thrilled that I decided to
choose you over the other breeders I found on-line. I will be very
happy to be a reference for you and will keep you in the loop as they
grow up and especially with their first freshening sometime late next
year. I think I told you Dr. Kim was impressed that I had decided to
go to the expense and bother to import new blood to the island and was
equally impressed with how you handled all the requirements and hoop
jumping, and was equally impressed with the girls and how healthy they
"Well, the girls passed their last inspection, but then I am sure you
knew they would! These does are really wonderful. They were patient
in the truck getting to Dr. Kim's office, stood quietly on their
leashes (thank you for them, by the way!) while I talked to Dr. Kim
and did not struggle very much at all while she inspected their eyes
and ears. Dr. Kim was also impressed by you and was happy to see such
healthy baby goats. She was also happy to see someone was bringing in
new blood for Dwarf Nigerians, as she says she sees a lot of animals
that have physical and health issues due to inbreeding."
