2.  Buyer agrees that this goat or any offspring of this goat shall not be given to, sold to, leased to, or consigned to any commercial pet store, chain store, commercial breeding establishment, nor fund raiser raffle, no matter how charitable.
3.  Buyer agrees that, should the occasion arise, that if it becomes impossible to either maintain the goat in a humane situation, or they need  to rehome the goat, the buyer agrees to return it to the seller with no or partial compensation at the discretion of the sellers.
