Im happy to announce that I have 4 angora goats now.  They are beautiful!  Momma is older but she came with 3 kids.  Momma and one doe are reverse badgers, other doeling is black the buckling who's larger than his sisters is also black but has a big white spot on his head and smaller on his leg.  I will shear Momma next week.  Right now we are getting used to each other.  She's pretty shy right now.  So I am giving her some space while she can watch me with the others.  So happy to have these beautiful goaties.

I hope to get some pictures today.  We have been so busy lately.  We took 7 Nubians and 1 angora to the conservation fair Thursday.  Today Michelle the 9 year old is doing a speech contest on dairy goats.  She's excited about that.  Then church all day tomorrow.  So hopefully Monday I will have the new pen set up and get them out there so we can get some pictures.  They have beautiful blue eyes.  Curly Sue is a deep dark black.  Her siblings are beautiful too.

Thanks you know how long I've waited for this?  Seems like forever but more like 6 months or so.  I love them!

She is a cutie!  Tring to figure out names for the others.  Poor boy can't think of anything but spot!  Then the other girl, I'm lost.  I did name my two Nubian baby girls Naomi and Ruth the boy is Issac.  I was pretty down in the dumps over my finances lately but have sold a few pounds of fiber to 2 different people and a local spinner wants to buy all I can produce for her.  She's teaching some army wives to spin and they want to use locally produced fiber!  Yea!  My first income is tomorrow!  I will survive.

Thanks Birdie hope to get some photos of the whole family together.  Today is their first day turned out together.  They are all running jumping and talking about who is in charge.
