    I think its still just me :p

    Here are this year's kids. We thought our buck was a dud but then more and more kids kept showing up. 4 doelings out of 3 does. There 2 fading reds, a white and a chocolate.

    White twin, she's more of a not quite white but she'll fade out as she grows.

    Red twin, she's got ridiculous airplane ears sometimes.

    The other two are a month older.

    Taffeta is my little pink bottle baby. She's hard to get pictures of because she's usually on my lap or chewing on my pants.

    These goats are gorgeous. How big does an Angora goat get? I have a Pygora, she is not very big at all and the rest of my herd is ND and Mini silky fainters. Do you shear the Angora or brush the fibre out? I just let my girl shed naturally and then clip it off her in the spring, but I don't use it for anything. Maybe should start, it's lovely and soft. I must admit, I am partial to the red ones, so pretty.
