The Cliff Hanger...

Today I went and got the start of the second part of my fiber dream...two Pygoras!  Pygoras are a cross between a pygmy and an angora goat! They are a relatively new breed and have wonderful fiber! I got two young girls today, yet to be named! This chocolaty sweet girl....




 And this little red sweetie who is just a little younger!




 They went in with our other girls who checked them out thoroughly but were not mean to them at all.



 This is Doodah, Lola and Sweet Pea trying to figure out these new fluffy goaties!

 
Nibbles is getting a little too personal with her inspection of Chocolate Girl! Chocolate Girl is like,"Hey, hey, hey watch it back there!"




 I am very fond of red colored animals,I married one after all,lol!  Hubby is a red head! I just had to take home this little cutie!



I knew for sure I wanted the red one but it was a hard choice to pick out the second one! These goats come in many colors and well ...they had a lot of colors there! I would like to get one more girl and I am on the list for a baby buck when they get one and then I will have my own little herd of Pygoras....sigh......


















These girls have been hand raised and are just as sweet as they can be! I am just on cloud nine....Feel free to leave suggestions for names!

The red goat -- Barbarosa! And the chocolately one -- Caramello! :)

That's all I got. I am extremely envious right now. I want some goaty babies.

Oh! They are beautiful and the little one looks like a toy! I can see you mind spinning about your spinning!

Can't think of a name for the horned one, but Muffy comes to mind for the smaller one.

They are so bleep cute!!!!!

They are so cute! How fun to have your own source of fiber. Bubble and Button is what comes to my mind. Have fun giving them their new names and do share when you pick their names. Rebekah

Congratulations! They're very pretty. It's wonderful that you know all this about fiber and such.

Glad they assimilated so easily into your herd. :)

They are beautiful! I'll bet they're really soft. It was good that the existing herd accepted them so easily. I like Nancy's suggestions for names for them.

No name ideas here because I am pretty much brain dead, but I think I could look at goats for a good long time. I like the red one, too!

Pashmina & Cashmere?

DebH said...

I bet you are excited!! Your own spinning wheel??!! and new goats to go with?? How fun and I KNOW(can't wait) you will to show us lots more of your creative genius in all the gorgeous things you will be creating!! I really want to know lots more on the fiber from those types of goats. I am going to google right now!! I think spinning fiber is just amazing and think of all the things you can be making!! I think Pricilla's suggestion is about the best..Knit and Purl..thats hilarious! I always have to wait to see the character in my goats to name them first. A name just has to fit to feel right! Congratulations, you so deserve the best!

Congrats on your new additions! Very cute! I hope all will continue to get along well. :)

I really like Purl (or Pearl). How about Minnie and Pearl. :)

I like Pricilla's suggestion of Knit and Purl! Very cute.

They are so cute! I would hope my girls would be so nice to a new addition. That's pretty impressive.

oooo! I've been trying to turn myself into a PyBoerGora goat for some time...ever since I saw Lucky Nickel over at Claire's Whispering Oaks! I do like the different colors!!! Pretty.

Ah my goat-kid gotta-hug need is beginning to kick in! They are adorable!

They are precious! So glad the other goaties welcomed them!

Name suggestions: Coco and Henna

Thanks for sharing the new barnyard beauties!

Have a great week!

How about 'Truffle' for one! First thing I thought of as I glanced back and forth at a plate full and at these adorable critters!
Certainly worth waiting for.
