Good for you! They are very easy to maintain. My Aunt has three Angoras and we have finally found a place that will make yarn for me.

I promise to take photos of Aunt Barb and I trying to shear these guys. I think it's gonna be a challenge!

Keep us posted on your progress.

I definitely will. These have just recently been sheared. So I have until April to learn what the heck I'm doing... LOL
The lady I bought them from told me where to take it to be processed too.

I want to learn how to spin it and dye it myself some day if I can find someone nearby to teach me.

It looks like that breed of goat is a meat and 'yarn' critter.

I'm just reporting what I researched for the breed of goat. I want the yarn more than I need food at this hour.

Lovely goats, I always wanted some, but we don't have that much room. I hope you can get some wonderful yarn from them and show us what you make in due course.
