If you need some land cleared, goats are the way to get it done. They love brush, knapweed,
and thistles. They have done a wonderful job of opening our forest up. We can see through
the trees now!
They make good pets, too. Very friendly, and they love to see what is happening all the time.
If you want a dual purpose animal, cashmere goats are good. They are great weed-eaters that
just happen to have that luxurious cashmere fiber all over them!
PINE NEEDLE FARM CASHMERES
The 2013 kid crop, 18 so far with three more Does due around
the end of the month.
Cupid (in front) and Cristie, Astrid's kids. Born 2-10.
BB (Baby Belle) and Samantha, Belle's kids. BB is the
one laying down. These two are half cashmere and
half dairy. Born 3-14.
Cleo and Daisy relaxing in the sun. They are out
of Luna. She wins the prize for the most colorful
kids this year, so far.
This is Bart, the bottle baby for this year. He was
born on April 6th. He knows his name and comes
when he's called. (most of the time)
Fancy surrounded by her daughter Carmen, then
Tinkerbell, who is out of Thelma, and the one behind her is
Petunia, who is Ariel's kid this year.
Louie and Bud enjoying the sun. Louie is out of
Louise, and Bud is out of Oksana. I'm keeping
Louie a buck and will sell him. He's got a good
square conformation, and he's way softer
feeling than the other kids. I'd keep him myself,
but he's too related to everyone.
Here's Marigold, she's out of Maggie.
Enjoying the warmth of the sun!
Speckles and her triplets
Whiteout thinking about climbing the tree.
