    I recently added an Angora goat to my Nigerian goat herd, named Bailey. She is the first fiber animal I've ever owned, but I am definitely in love! Her mohair is so plushy and amazing. She is still on the skittish side, but she and I are working on establishing trust.

    She is still in quarantine, but she can see and hear the other goats. Also, keeping her in a smaller pen has helped her learn I am not a scary person, but the bearer of treats! I do hope she continues to open up. Bailey was born on May 31st, much later than the other angora kids born on her breeder's farm this year. So she ran with her mother and the other adults, rather than being separated and socialized with the kids.

    Anyway, I know pictures are a must!
