I'm new to this fiber goat thing..... I have 2 type A pygoras, 1 type B and 2 type C's. I did not shear the A's this fall as I thought they should have the extra fleece for the awful cold northern MN winters. I do brush them regularly to keep it fleece from matting.

I can cut some of the longest locks for santa beards & doll hair. My question is ..... will it destroy their fleece if I wait until spring to shear the A's? They are less than a year old & this is their first winter if that makes a difference.


Thanks in advance - mmm

Honestly, I don't know about them - but my vet was out here the very end of September, and my llama that I had just got had not been sheered for over 3 years that we could tell. Well, she said to wait till spring cause they need it for winter.

With that said - if they were mine I would definately wait, as it is colder there then it is here!
