Who's Next to Shear?

Here are a couple of the goats that are in need of shearing. First is Roger.  Roger is my only true Pygora.  He is older and his fleece is not as nice as his younger years.  Roger is the sire to most of my goats.

 Next is Little Buck.  He is Roger's first son.  He was wethered at about 9 months old.  He is the sweetest of all the male goats.  Wethering him has stunted his horn growth and I think his height as well. He is an adult goat, so his fleece is considered adult mohair.  His Dam is Silver, a full Angora Goat.  Buck is 3/4 Angora and 1/4 Pygmy.

Another soon to shear is Miracle.  Her Dam is Grace, and Sire is Pete, 2nd son to Roger.  Pete is the only intact male I have left.  He is a badger face, like Roger, and Little Buck but has blue in his eyes. She would be 1/2 Angora and 1/4 Alpine/Domestic? and 1/4 Pygmy. She is a timid little doe, and this will be her last shearing as a Kid Mohair.  She has a lot of vegetable matter in her fleece....YUCK!
