Izzy was my first bottle baby and she is still very tame--she loves everybody! She kidded last June on the day of a terrible storm. Little Stormy is a sweet girl, too. She still has her baby blue eyes, so I have started calling her Storm (you know, like in X-men?). Here they are just before shearing time.
This is Izzy and Storm just after I sheared them. When I shear my goats, they always look to me like they are taking off their warm winter pajamas for the spring. Angora goats are so funny after shearing--they have to butt heads to establish precedence again. They have such a strong pecking order that they know exactly who is one bit stronger than them and who is one bit weaker. Here mama and baby are sniffing each other to make sure who they are
Angora goats rule!
Thank you, Lord, for my job, my home, and goats!
