San Clemente Island Goats


Chopin Valse No.7

In order to survive as a breed, San Clemente Island goats need geographical diversification and genetic diversity within the breed. If you would like to be a responsible steward for this highly-endangered breed, please consider beginning a breeding program. If you already have San Clemente Island goats, you may wish to get additional goats to improve your gene pool. If you don't want to breed goats, you may still be interested in purchasing any non-breeding goats available.

Only purebred San Clemente Island goats may be listed on this page. We are relying on the integrity and knowledge of our breeders to provide accurate information and to act ethically. If you would like to list a goat for sale or trade, please contact us with as many details as possible. For Sale listings will be removed 30 days after posting. If you're looking for a goat, let us know and we'll post it here.

Tips for purchasing goats

  • Consider asking the breeder to sell the goat pregnant. This will increase the gene pool in your area. Don't expect a guarantee of pregnancy.
  • Goats have to have permanent ID to ship interstate for breeding. Usually this means a scrapies tag.
  • Think biosecurity—any goats you buy should be dewormed, healthy, and test negative for diseases specified by state regulations. (Go to Map page to find out what your state requires. If your state doesn't have breeders listed, visit the US State Animal Import Regulations site posted by the USDA.)
  • The San Clemente Island Goat Association only lists purebred San Clemente Island goats on this For Sale page and on our Breeder List.
  • If you're selling to a zoo, please read our zoo page.
  • Unsure about Scrapies and Scrapies tags? Visit our Scrapies Page.

Oregon: Dispersing our SCI buck herd. (Lost our land lease. Bucks are related to our does). All parents are registered with International Dairy Goat Registry.
(Note from SCI Goat Association: not show favorites or anything, but these are some of the most genetically important goats we have.
Larry Warren goats were some of the few goats that did NOT go through Fund for Animals, but were taken off the Island and driven up to Warren's aunt's house personally by Phyllis Larsen and Diane Nelson (formerly Diane Clapp). Warren's goats were hand-picked for color variation.
The Tepper and "Canadian" goats in Elizabeth's herd are decades apart from what most of us have. Grasier has some of the "oldest/closest to original" genetics available today. Read on. . .)

Selling about four or five 4–6 year olds out of high Tepper stock and some with Larry Warren. Founding stock:

  • born in 1995 (IDGR SCI-0188 - 100% Tepper)
  • born in 1997 (IDGR SCI-0204 – 50% Tepper and 50% Canadian: Kelyde’s Loft > McDonald > Heritage Performer> us).
  • born in 2001 (IDGR SCI-0243 – 100% Larry Warren: Larry Warren > Earth Spirit > us).
Also selling about seven or eight 2–3 year olds out of above stock and additional Rivetti or Rivetti/NH founding stock
  • born in 2012 (IDGR SCI-1016 - 100% Rivetti or 50% Rivetti/50% NH: Willow Valley Farms > us)
Very fittest of bucks; Tested by strong natural selection for 2–6 years. The bucks vary in form from extra muscular to tall and lanky to short to average (most). Most are dark and several are red/mahogany rumps and several are tan rumps, etc. Many are readjusted/readjusting to people and handling. They are located on our farm near Portland, Oregon. We have some transport ideas, if needed.
Please contact Elizabeth Lindsey, 503–632–5568.
