    My fiance and I are building up my cashmere herd again after I sold a lot of them. We have a few that we are getting, but are looking for others. We are interested in all, but grey/silver would be nice lol Bucks or does. (preferabley does but won't ignore a buck). Anyways, what we are wanting to do is bring new genetics to our area since, as Lori knows, our genepool is small here (in El Paso County)

    Or we may be interested in a stud service too. I know we are going to try and breed one or two of ours to Lori's (I talk with you more on that Lori as to why)

    Thanks!

    The woman we bought some of our Nigerians from also has Cashmeres. We REALLY like the Nigerians we got from her. They're very friendly and conformationally correct. I don't know a lot about Cashmeres, but the babies on her new arrivals page sure are cute. Check out her website - www.timberwoodfarmandfiber.com

    To bad you are so far away, I have a beautiful herd I need to sell. Cashmeres are really nice goats! Good luck.

    That's a shame that you are selling them. I love cashmeres, they are the best goats that I have ever owned. What colors do you have? Just out of curiosity

    Thanks for the reply! :thumb:

    Everyone, I just want you to know that out of all the project leaders in our county and the ones that I have dealt with, Lori was the best. And that isn't just me being a suck up. I know all I do today from cashmeres because of Lori. She's like the cashmere guru lol :angelgoat:

    Well, I really need to "pay attention" lol. Sammy I have several colors, from white to black. I have a huge doe that is a chamoisee. She's due to deliver any minute now. Peaches just had twin doelings yesterday, they are very cute, one black one peachy/beige.

    I'm trying to get the "north 40" (really about 2.5 acres) property line cleared so I can get it fenced...if that happens I want to get the large goats to work out there eating the brush and weeds, etc. But, that depends on how much it costs...this property has been allowed to "get back to nature" for 40 years now so it's probably going to be prohibitively expensive. We are trying to cut some expenses so we can get my poor hubby into "semi" retirement. lol

    You are right about these goats though, very nice even temperments. Love them, but, I haven't processed any cashmere yet, and we only have a few acres. And, I've been having health issues, lately. Nothing life threatening (thank you Lord), but my arthritis is requiring surgery (right hand just out of a cast) and I just need to "acknowlege" the fact I'm getting older, oh pooh! :GAAH:

    I hear ya on the expense part. We are currently in the process of fencing our property (just 5 acres). We redid the buck pen. So now between the buck pen and doe pen there is like 12 feet or so and it is 12 feet by 25 feet sections. In the fall these will be breeding pens, but they'll act as safety nets incase the bucks (or does) decide that they need to be together lol Then we are going to fence our whole property, and make a pasture and then to add to all the excitement we are going to trench down to the doe pen, the buck pen, and down to the meadow to put hydrants in for water.

    Sammy, wouldn't it be cool if we could drive together to go buy some of Di's goats? Heck we could make a big trip of it and go see a bunch of farms and people. :shocked:

    SSHHHHH, don't tell Terry I just said that. Man that would be a lot of fun.

    Oh it is tempting Di.

    Can you post some pictures of the goats you are selling? I like, front view, butt view and side. Of course I would love to see the fiber.

    Sorry, these goats aren't going to sell themselves are they?

    Here are some pics, hope they are good enough.
    This is Miss Fine (aka Frannie)

    This is one of Dharma's doelings

    This is one of the Margie bucklings, she does great work!
    [​IMG]

    Just a few pics, the girls are a little thin after kidding and making all that fiber.
    I just got the cashmere off most everyone, Frannie is still holding onto some of hers! That's late for me, I usually have it all off before mid April.

    Thanks for looking, let me know how many you want, lol.

    Hi! I have...aammmm....4 new bucklings, ranging in age from 1 mo to 3 mos. And, yes, I'm done kidding for this year. The girls all kidded successfully on their own this year...I was watching...but it seemed as soon as I walked out of the barn they slipped them out, on their own. I guess my "mother hen routine" wasn't necessary after all. :chin:
