I WANT ONE I WANT ONE I WANT ONE  bear_wub   bear_wub   bear_wub

Can you tell i want one?

Gosh, they are soooooooo beeeeautiful are'nt they?  bear_wub

As i said before, we had a couple of goats for years but not this type - if El Tel would let me i would have a whole herd of these little babies.

Their cute little faces and posture is inspiring me to make a creature using the natural curls - i've got loads in all types of natural colours - oooooooooh i'm off to get sketching!

Why can't the days be longer, there's so much i wanna do  bear_shocked   bear_original   bear_flower

Oh, LOOK at them!
I want one too! Can I have one? Huh? Huh?

I LOVE those ears!!! (There I go with ears again!)

They look so huggable. Though I've had my experience with goats and those horns... as a small child I was butted down a hill by billy goat. Knocked the wind out of me and I had nightmares about that darn thing.

But LOOK at those guys....... awwww!

Thanks for sharing the pictures, Estelle!

Wonderful photos, Estelle!  The Hill Country of Texas is a huge source of angora goats.  Also, llamas (similar to alpacas) are big here.  Think Monty Sours of The Teddy Bear Lady raises her own llamas and spins the hair to make her creations.

Oooo, I've always wanted a goat, and I want one of these!!!  Do you think I could potty train one and have it in my house?????  It could be just like a dog... lol

I am liking the ears, too hee hee!  I'm one for floppy animal ears!

This is terrible....and I apologize for my momentary inconsideretness, my first thought when I saw that big beautiful creature was:

WOW.....look at all those rovings....keep you going forever.



I know that was heartless.....and it truly was momentary....

Truly a magnificent animal.  Around here goats of all kinds are much loved....(they eat poison oak)....


Thank you for sharing Estelle

Dilu . . . you weren't being heartless . . . the animal isn't sacrificed - just sheared, like sheep.  You may rest easier!  :hug:
