Sweaters on Goats

    I did recently show a black and white photo of some of my Angora goats wearing sweaters in one of my April Fool Photos blog, but I just came across a better photo of the goats wearing their sweaters.  

    Because Angora goat mohair grows so rapidly, they are shorn twice a year.  This is fine in warmer climes, but up here in Interior British Columbia it can be a problem, because of the cold weather we can get in both the Spring and the Fall. 

    We didn’t want to have cold, newly-shorn goats, so after they were shorn we carefully watched the weather and if it was going to get cold or wet, on went the sweaters we had gotten at the second hand store in McBride.
