Because we need more animals : )

So in about 3 weeks we will have 4 new additions to our farm... yesterday Brian and I went up to Hawks Mountain Ranch and picked out four of the cutest little weathers ever : ) they are just weaned - little bouncing babies... and I can't wait to bring them home...

These little guys are "Pygora" goats - these are smaller goats about the size of romeo and Juliette... I've learned they are great with kids, produce wonderful hand spinning fiber, and are good brush eaters !! which all sounds good to me ...

They are a cross of a Pygmy goat and an Angora Goat. The Angora goat brings in the white mohair fiber and the Pygmy brings in the color and Cashmere type fiber.

Here they are .. more photos when we bring them home : )
