    Finally pictures of our new Angora she will be a year old in May sometime, She is so sweet, still getting use to being here with us but I think we are making head way...

    She stood so well last night when we sheared her, and i am pretty sure we did the worst job ever done, but it is done -

    Congrats on your new fuzzball! What a cutie! Do you have an "after" pic showing her new "do"?

    If it's any consolation and your girl is anything like mine, her fleece will grow back in a wink. :wink:

    I will post some tonight- we did not get her totally done on Sunday still need to do head between her horns and her belly.. it was getting time for dinner and we were doing in the kitchen so and she was being so good but you could tell she was getting tired of us doing it...

    I can not believe how sweet and CALM of a personality she has.. are all angora like this.

    she is cute!

    yes angoras tend to be VERY laid back animals ... probably the most easy going and least demanding of all breeds ... and I have all types angoras, boers and dairies ...

    I think she looks quite dapper myself. :)

    And I must say you did a fine job. :thumbup: Her clip looks much nicer and cleaner than my girls' and theirs was done by a professional shearer from the midwest that comes out here (AZ) twice a year.

    Thank you!

    We knew we did not want her to be bald so we left more hair then I think most people do but oh well.. I think she looks much happier with all that hair gone..
     
  14. Well, I think she looks cute either way. Congrats on the cuttie!

    What a doll! I don't think the cut looks terrible. At first I was like whoa but then I realized that you guys had the intention of leaving more hair on. Most people around here shave them bald. But I like that you guys left some hair :shades:
