Snickers the Pygora

Adopting
this guy was a total experiment by my mother. Snickers is a Pygora
Goat, a cross between a Pygmy and an Angora goat. They are known for
producing three kinds of fleece, most notably cashmere, and can also
be milked for cheese. He is 11 years old, which makes him a bit
long-in-the tooth for a goat. But mom had taken to spinning her own
yarn to make afghans for her friends and family, and wanted to
completely control the final outcome by producing her own yarn. With
the help of snickers, she eventually learned her craft. Snickers is
basically just a very expensive pet now, I his later years. He
eats well and follows mom around the farm like a dog when she comes
to visit. They are quite bonded, oddly as you might think.
