Shear Me!!!

There might have been a dusting of snow last night and the temp was 24 this am but one of the goats is saying "shear me!" With the days getting a little bit longer each day, that is the signal for the goats to start shedding if someone doesn't step in and shear. Never mind that Mother Nature and that darn groundhog still have winter on their mind.

So this weekend I will be spot shearing Delilah, only shearing the best fleece from her sides and leaving the rest to attempt to keep her warm. The fleece that is left will probably start to matt some but I'll remove that as the weather warms up. In the meantime she will have to wear a goat sweater or coat.

Some of our fleeces from the fall have been sent out to a fiber mill to be processed into prime roving for your spinning pleasure. It'll take about 8-10 weeks but hopefully will be back in time for most of the festivals in spring.

Bella, our Pygmy doe, is due to kid the end of the month and her udders are bagging up getting ready for those cute kids. She was bred to Buckley, our PBA Pygora.
