Colored Angora Goats & White Angora doe and twins

This is Petunia with her twin 4th of July kids! They were the smallest kids born on our farm and are growing nicely. Petunia didn't quite know what to think of these 2, but has grown into a wonderful caring mom. They cry and she runs. I love to pick them up and feel them melt in my arms. Too sweet!

This is a new black buck I purchased from Julie. The white doe behind him is the mom of my blond doe kid.

This is the Blond Kid doe. Her fiber is very silky and thick. I have been working on taming them. They come within a foot of me now. I have picked up the above black buck and the red buck pictured next.

This is my new red buck kid. Not as dark as Bette Boop, but wonderful confirmation and light red coloring. He is very handsome. I have to decide which buck I am going to keep as a buck and which one I should wether. It will be a hard decision!

This is a head shot of my red buck kid with blue eyes.

Olde English "Babydoll" Southdowns

Thank you for giving Amos and Andy a new home. Babydoll Southdowns are the best sheep around with their docile nature and cute little faces. Good luck with your new additions. Betty

Colored Angora Goats from Kelly Corner Farm

Thank you Julie Patterson from Kelly Corner Farm in New Hampshire for the 6 beautiful additions to my farm. The buck Julie is holding is a handsome black buck with gold tips. His coat is thick and silky. He has a wonderful strong personallity and a rich color that can only improve my flock. I hope, if the sun comes out brightly tomorrow to add more pictures of my new additions.
Maine Open Farms Days will be held at my farm. My Olde English "Babydolls", Colored/White Angora Goats and German Angora Rabbits will be within walking distance. My friends and myself will be demonstrating: Spinning, Crocheting, Rug Hooking, Needle Felting, Locker Hooking, Solar Dyeing and Rug Braiding.
This will also be the Grand Opening of our Yarn Shop! Come and check out our fiber projects, yarns and roving. Directions to Spinnakees' Farm: Take Route 105 out of Augusta 5 - 6 miles (follow yellow signs on the right), take a left onto the Tasker Road and go to the end. Park at the beginning of the driveway to the right so others can drive to the left when they leave. Bring a lawn chair a project to work on and join us for the day!
