Day 56 Chronicles of Showing
Only 4 days left till SAFF, the Southeastern Animal Fiber Festival and Pygora Goat show. Life on a farm is full of twists and turns. Sometimes it's full of joy and wonder, sometimes there is disappointment.
Our horse hurt her shoulder this summer and there hasn't been much improvement so she is going to see the vets at UT (Unniversity of Tennessee) for some chiropractic care and possible xrays.
Also, our dear old Angora goat, Yogi, has been having trouble standing for long. In the last week his back legs have given out on him. He can no longer stand. He is alert and eating but a goat needs to be able to move around and forage. So with heavy heart we must say good bye for now. We will hold him tight and love him.
It's been a hard decision but we have decided not to go to SAFF this year. Looking out at the goats, they look like they are all dressed up but have no prom to go to. We have decided to turn lemons into lemonade. This weekend we will be shearing everyone. Then the ladies will get turned into the pasture with Buckley. Let the breeding begin. We're sure this will help Buckley with the loss of his friend Yogi.
There are pictures of everyone now on the fiber page. If you're interested in someone's fleece please send me a note and I'll let you know if it's still available.
We'll be taking kid deposits for spring 2015. A $100 non-refundable* deposit is required to place your name on our kid waiting list. Order on the list to chose your kid is determined by when your deposit was received. 100% of your deposit will go towards the purchase price. * If we don't have a kid available for you or if the kid doesn't pass the health exam, then the $100 deposit is refunded. More information available under Pygoras, kid deposit.
