Name the Baby Contest!

May 8, 2012 in Angora Goats, Blog, Uncategorized by admin

Our new baby

 

Our very first baby Angora Goat was born last Saturday, and she is cute as anything!  She’s got the cute face, the soft white fleece, the bounce when she walks, but there’s one thing she doesn’t have.  A name!  Here’s where you come in.  Submit your suggestions for a name, and you may win our “Name The Baby Contest”.

Here are some more pictures for inspiration:

Isn’t she adorable?!  Just so you know, her mom, dad, and aunt all have names from Greek mythology, but that doesn’t mean that this little girl has to.  We will accept suggestions until May 28.  At that time we will choose the name we like best, and the person who has suggested it will win either a skein of yarn or some other fiber related product (felted soap, for example).  To enter, either post a comment here or on our Facebook page, or mail your suggestion to our farm address (links and addresses posted on our home page).  Good luck!

Happy Trails Odysseus

April 16, 2012 in Angora Goats, Blog, Our Animals by admin

Yesterday we said goodbye to our lovely guy, Odysseus, who is moving to Michigan. As much as we love the big cuddlebug he needed a home with more goats to play with. He got along with the sheep but they just don’t play the same goat games. He is going to be so much happier with all his new goat friends!

We’ll miss you big guy!

Fall Goat Shearing

October 11, 2011 in Angora Goats, Blog, Our Animals by admin

It’s that time of year again! Time for our lovely trio of goats to get their fall haircuts. Thanks so much to Mary Jane Fox for doing such a great job. She thought she was in trouble when she saw Odoriferous Odysseus standing up begging for apples but he was really good and we got him sheared with no problems.

In the stand, halfway done.

 

All done!

 

Dido looks like a poodle with her topknot.

What a handsome guy!

 

Thanks again to Mary Jane Fox for doing such a good job and Linn Parise for coming out and giving us a hand.

We love you too, goats

The poor goats don’t get featured here nearly enough. I get so caught up with the adorable baby sheep antics and I completely forget to bring my camera when I go visit the  muppets goats. Time to remedy that because the goats are awesome.

The new residents

March 25, 2011 in Angora Goats, Blog, Our Animals by admin

This past Tuesday a van full of goats arrived here at Roving Acres, bringing us our three new Angoras from Karen at Silver Creek Meadows.

Odysseus is a 3 year old black buck.

He’s super friendly and loves his cuddle time.

Dido and

Electra

are twin white does.

They are joining us just in time for our shearing festival and open house this Saturday from 11-4. Come on by if you want to cuddle them yourselves. They’re a little shy but warming up to us a little more every day and never refuse a carrot!
