The Herd Grows

    I enjoyed raising Angora goats.  Wotan and Brunhilde had kids yearly, and I bought a few other goats and my herd grew and grew.  It eventually reached 23 which was way to many.  I didn’t have room enough in the barn for them or for all of the hay I had to store for the winter. It was a real chore to shear so many.   It was also getting to be too much work, so I eventually sold some, so the herd was more easy to manage.

    Angoras behaved more like sheep than your stereotypical goats.  They were shy and pretty passive.  In the photo above they are all looking suspiciously at me wondering what I was up to.
