newborn Speckles & Rapunzel

This is our “herd” of Angora goats.  They are twin does, Speckles & Rapunzel.  They were born March 14, 2014.   Angora goats are trimmed usually twice yearly.  We clip spring & late fall.  Lots of curly Qs with a fantastic shine & feel.  Their hair grows about an inch every month.

This is how the Angoras look after they have been clipped.

We put blankets on them to keep them warm after they “lose” their coat.
