    He's about weeks old and he's ½ Cashmere and ½ Angora; I think I might be sticking with the name Macaroni for him. I'd name him Noodles, but it sounds too much like my #1 goat, Newton. From the picture, you can't tell how small he is, but he curls up on my lap and fits like a cat.

    Thanks, now I just have to get him through the adjustment of going from his goaty mama to my bottle without having him lose any weight, so far, he's not going for the bottle too much.

    He is fabulous! What an adorable face. Will you be producing cashmere/angora wool for spinning or felting?

    Yes, I got him from my friend, who is also teaching me how to spin and weave.
