I adopted a new son yesterday..a yearling, blue eyed, black angora buck. For now, I'm just calling him Little Man until I find a name that fits. He was behind on shearing, but I got that done as soon as we got home and he is so happy now that he is free of all that hair. Running my hand over him is like touching velvet. His old home loved him very much. They got a little behind on the shearing, but some folks don't know and they loved and fussed on him making him a real sweetie pie. When the shearing was done, he stood up, turned to me, looked me right in the eyes and then walked toward me and licked me on the mouth! ha ha He's a charmer and really pretty. I'm so happy to have him. :love:

Thanks Bambi and Peggy! He's my handsome little man. I was lucky enough to get the 3 other goats in his family later in the week after I posted this They haven't been taken care of in about a year but I love fixing things up and making them pretty again :) I'll post pics when everyone is all beautified! :D

Oh... I didn't know Angoras could have blue eyes either, ooooo, too bad we can't breed our Angora doe this year ;)
He is truly an amazing looking goat.

I didn't know either until I saw him. At first, I thought that he must be a cross but I looked at his coat and only see mohair. He and 2 other adults I have were bred at a farm back east that's known for having really nice animals and frequently show. He wasn't well cared for at his last home so the kid fleece that came off this yearling boy (never sheared since birth I believe) was ruined. But what I found once all that mess came off was beautiful! I finally got the external and internal parasites under control and now i just need to get the boy to eat, eat, eat to get his weight up in the ballpark of where a healthy yearling should be and exercise to get some muscle. His knotted coat was a prison and he couldn't walk normally so he needs to stretch those muscles and tendons and get moving. In a few months, he's going to look amazing ;)
