The New Arrival !

La Nouvelle Pensionnaire !

Introducing Nadja! A beautiful little angora goat who is only 4 months old.
She is as gentle as a lamb, rather shy, and quite dainty.

She is in charge of eating the stinging nettle and other weeds that the sheep don't like.
And if that weren't enough, she will be providing a beautiful mohair fleece for the spinning shepherd!

Je vous présente Nadja, une jolie petite chèvre angora qui n'a que 4 mois.
Elle est douce comme un agneau, plutôt timide avec des petits gestes très délicats.

Elle est chargée de manger des orties et d'autres mauvaises herbes que les moutons n'aiment pas. En plus, elle va donner une belle toison de mohair pour la bergère filandière !

Hi Jody! I love kid mohair too! Nadja has a lovely little fleece ... she will soon be getting a coat for the winter/hay season. And yes! I am looking forward to working with her fleece!
