I picked up this new little doeling the other day in Gimli, Manitoba.  She's an angora goat and was born this spring.  I've been wanting an angora for a long time now but they are very hard to come by.  She's already been clipped this year, and I was given the bag of her mohair when she came.  It is so soft and luxurious.  By next spring her coat should be a mass of long ringlets. Look for mohair mittens and slippers for sale this fall!  Anyone got any suggestions for her name?

This year I did it!  I got my red currants picked BEFORE the birds found them.  Needless to say, I had an excellent crop.  My two bushes produced enough to make many batches of red currant jelly. I now have available for sale: Red Currant Jelly  $5.00/250 ml jar.  Email me to order.  Thanks
