Happy New Year!

Wishing you all a happy, healthy, prosperous and peaceful new year. 

I am eternally grateful to Susie Gibbs of Juniper Moon Farm for the gift of the angora goats.  They bring me so much joy, I can’t begin to describe it.  They are growing and thriving, even in this cold, cold weather.  I’m amazed at how well they cope, but I guess if I was growing a mohair suit, I’d be warmer too.  I’m so looking forward to working with their fiber, it’s looking and feeling very fine indeed.  I enjoy their antics everyday, they have such great personalities and I wish everyone could come and meet them personally, consider yourselves invited.   Here are just a couple of photos I took at 6:30 this morning, wanted to let you see how cute and curly they’re looking.

Varitek nibbling my sleeve, his favorite pasttime

You can see here how much curlier and warmer the goats are these days.   Sorry for the red eyes, flash photo early in the morning is not so kind, even to goats.

Yay for heated water buckets!

Nola is having a nice drink of warm water with molasses, thanks again to the mystery donor of the heated water buckets!  It’s been very cold here the last few days, below zero temps, and the water has stayed liquid, quite a little miracle.   That’s Tallulah holding court on the overturned grain bucket, she’s still the boss.

Pedey and Seymour

Surprisingly, Pedey’s coat seems to be the fullest and curliest of all the kids, even though he’s still the littlest goat.   That helps keep him warm I guess.  I so wish I could get a pic of them all snuggled up sleeping together, but they always hear me opening the barn door and jump right up, so you’ll have to take my word that it is the cutest thing you have ever seen.

    Thank you for the photos – they sure do grow a new coat fast.
    I love the mystery buckets – a RAK at its finest 😉

    Have a happy 2010 for you and your family (including curly kids).
