Newest Angora Goat at Avillion Farm
Pictured below is "Ghost Buster" - as in who you gonna' call. He comes from Kid Hollow Farm in VA. I spotted him from 100 feet away at SAFF in Fletcher, NC this year. I've been yearning for a blue buck for several years now - blue being the breeder slang term for white with colored fibers. Right now he looks silvery blue, but he will most likely darken with age. This goat has it all - lovely fiber, nice conformation and a charming personality as well. It was too late to use him this year, other than as a "clean up" buck, but I'm really looking forward to the kids he'll produce in the future.
