I can't believe how much work is around the place--it seems like I never sit down when I get home, and still feel like I'm always behind my chores! Since I have 25 goats now, one thing I did to ease the burden of shearing season was to stagger their shearing and not try to do them all at once in April and September. Some of the older ones only need sheared once a year now, they are getting to have thinner hair. Some need sheared a little more than twice a year, they are so productive. So I shear them just as they need it, just so long as they have enough to keep them warm in winter.
Angora goats rule!
Thank you, Lord, for my job, my home, and goats!
