And the pasture pets are soooo ready to be sheared. They need to wait a few more weeks, as I don't shear until March, because Angora goats have to be sheared twice a year. This way I can shear the goats again in September. There is a method to my madness, but their fleeces are ready to come off now!
I love Shetland sheep because of their size and personality and variety of colors. From left to right: Diego (white with black spots), Genevieve (brown), and Comfrey (black). Diego's fleece has a nice length and is very soft. Genevieve has a very short, but bouncy fiber. Comfrey is a bit longer and really, really soft.
Diego and Genevieve live right here with me, so I can't wait to see how their fleeces turn out this year. Here's a pic of them in warmer days.
