Wednesday was ofcourse extremely exciting with Obamas inauguration ! It's as if the whole world is in this new "hopeful" mood with the knowledge that dreams can come true and that we can achieve anything...yes, we can!...:) Now everybody just has to keep that thought and make it happen !
Yesterday, just when I finished uploading all my photos , the thunder and lightning rolled in and yep, we lost power AGAIN....for the rest of the day! I guess the sooner we can get off the grid and establish some kind of solar or hydro power on the farm, the better..lol...but til that day, everytime the power drops out (which happens often) we will have a relaxing night without tv & computer and enjoy a candlelight dinner... reading a book (with difficulty...lol) and going to bed early.....omg
NEW HAND SPUN AND HAND DYED AUSTRALIAN HERITAGE MOHAIR
The Australian Heritage Angora goat is Australia's most endangered goat breed. There are less than a couple of hundred purebred animals remaining and the future of this breed is uncertain. The Australian Heritage Angora has a unique history, tracing their pedigrees back to the first 500 Angora goats registered with the Goat breed society of Australia, the so called “Banksia herd”. It is totally different from other Angora goat breeds like the Texas Angora goat and the South African Angora goat, who both dominate the Australian Mohair industry because their fleeces are very high yielding. The Australian Heritage Angora goat is a bit less productive but produces the most luscious, silky, soft coat I have ever seen and worked with: it has gorgeous waves, curls and lots of lustre. The goats are adorable with a quiet temperament. They are a really easy to care for happy Angora goat and you know what they say: Happy animal, happy yarn! This time I have spun a happy swirly curly Australian heritage mohair and all proceeds will go to the building of a new much needed outside bunny run !
