Well, it has been two weeks since I got my little herd. The weather turned nice, so I finally got to start shearing. I did Strawberry today, she looks a little funny as my back and hands gave out before I finished her legs. Otherwise I think I did a fairly decent job, being my first time to shear and doing it by hand, not with electric shears. I'll post pics of the goats when I finish shearing.

I'm thinking about using the fiber and some other fiber I have for my MIL's Christmas present. I'm wanting to make her a knitted throw to use in the evenings when it is cool. She is in her mid-80's and she loves handmade items.
