Not the weather (which has been whacky) but the goat kind (the most important kind). Many people call us looking for does because they think that does are calmer and kinder than billy goats. No one really ever considers the wether. A wether is a neutered billy goat. I am a wether. No interest in breeding, just eating, hanging out, growing fleece, being awesome. Wethers are very nice goats. There seem to be a lot of boys born, so if you are a fiber artist, or someone who just wants a great pet who will eat your poison ivy and kudzu, then you should consider a wether. No stress on the fleece, either, (as in breeding season) so it stays nice. My personal fleece is adult quality now, but I'm 9 years old, so that's like almost old age in goat years. I had kid quality fleece for many years. Of course if my cuisine was a little more gourmet around here (hint, hint) my fleece would probably STILL be kid quality. (Can't blame a goat for trying). Anyway, this has been on my mind of late, so thought I'd share. I'll try to share more often. I just found the previous post about the trailer, which never got posted (good help is hard to find).
I will post a photo of the trailer once it is decal-ed, which I expect will happen next week. Wench has been dyeing yarn, so be looking for new items in the web store. Angora roving, too, is new in the store - don't miss out. This is a great deal. We are gearing up for Powhatan and High Fiber, Carolina Fiber Fest, all the spring shows, so be looking for us wherever fine fiber is sold! And ... as always, Thanks for reading Frankly speaking!
