Yesterday, the high was 44 degrees Fahrenheit. Today, it got up to 87 degrees. A cold front was forecast to come in this evening, and I was out with the goats when the winds suddenly changed from South, South West to North, North east. I looked up at the sky, and the front line was right overhead.
It is 56 degrees at the moment, and we should get some much needed rain from all this front activity. If you want to see our weather, you can go to https://www.wunderground.com/weather/KKSEASTO10 and see our particular weather stats from our weather station here.
When you live on a farm with a bunch of critters, the weather forecasts are really pretty important. It looks like we might get snow next week, so I was thrilled when our friend, Major, came by this afternoon to check on his deer blind. I asked him if he could move some of our giant hay bales to both the bucks pasture and to Willowheim. And, of course, he did.
Still need to spend a lot of time figuring out how to make a sales page here. I have been scouring some beautiful kid mohair that I sheared a couple of months ago, and as much as I would love to keep all of it for myself, I do need to make some money to keep my farm going!
I’ll work on getting some good photos tomorrow.
I always use my mohair and have never tried to sell it. Does it fetch a good price? What happens when the goats exceed two years old?
I use mohair from my goats their whole lives! Depending on the length and character of the fiber, it can be sold to doll makers, crafters, rug makers, etc. I really want to lock spin a lot for making some simple woven rugs. There are some very nice groups of Facebook where you can sell your mohair, also.
