Houdini was one of our first Pygora goats, brought to the farm in 2015 from Sunshine Pygoras in Bellefontaine, Ohio. She was named Houdini as she exhibited quite the skills of an expert escape artist. She is quite fond of scratches and is definitely the queen of the barn. She had her first kids (sire = Norris) in 2017 - triplet bucklings (though unfortunately one did not make it). The other two were beautiful and extremely friendly boys who were sold to Busy B Urban Homestead.
Chip was brought to the farm in 2016 from Greystone Homestead in Marysville, Ohio. She has a beautiful, dark, chocolatey grey fiber and a very lovey personality. Her microns tested the finest of the does in 2018 at 19.6 microns
Screech was brought to the farm with Chocolate Chip, from Greystone Homestead. She was named Screech due to her very vocal nature though she has quieted down a bit in this year she has been with us. She is a fairly small pygora, very sweet, with a beautiful lighter grey fiber. Her microns tested at 23.2 in 2018.
Jeena, along with Jet, are the newest members of the herd coming to us from Gun Plains Pygoras in Michigan. She has beautiful white type A fiber - the only type A we currently have. Her fiber had an average micron of 23.1 in 2018
Jet is a friendly young buckling joining the farm from Gun Plains Pygoras in June of 2017. His grey fiber is coming in nice and thick this fall. He had a bit of an adventure this year, scaling two different pasture fences in order to get in with the girls. Therefore we are assuming that all four does might be bread for spring of 2019!
Norris was a beautiful light carmel buck coming from Painted Shadow Farm in Kentucky. He was curious and inquisitive though didn't like to be loved as much as all the others. He was bred to Houdini in the Fall of 2016 resulting in triplet bucklings. Norris passed away on 22-April-2017 of unknown causes.
Logan came to us with Houdini, from Sunshine Pygoras in Ohio. He is a lovey, feisty, beautiful wether who seems to prove to me the saying that wethers have the best fiber.
Valentine - Reserved - born on 2/14/2019 is a single kid born to Screech and Jet. She’s a strong, healthy kid that every goat owner dreams about - up and nursing on her own within 15 minutes of being born. She is very friendly and has a unique (for us) brown undercoat. Can’t wait to see what her fiber comes in as.
Houdini’s only doeling - Reserved - born 2/21/2019 - This little girl had to share the womb with 3 bucklings so you know she has spunk. And yes, you heard correctly, Houdini and Jet had quadruplets! She is a beautiful light gray agouti doeling.
Chip’s Doeling - Reserved - born 3/1/2019 - This little black girl is a twin to first time parents Chocolate Chip and Jet. She was born on 3/1/2019 and was a bit bigger and stronger than her brother from the start. She is the one with the slightly curlier hair.
Jeena’s Doeling - Jeena, as a first time mom, easily had a single little white doeling. Unfortunately, unbeknownced to us, she didn’t allow the doeling to nurse the first night (I take full responsibility for this terrible outcome). We tried to give her strength by helping her feed the next day but we were too late. Jeena is now raising one of Houdini’s quadruplets.
Houdini’s Buckling #1- Reserved - Born 2/21/2019 - This boy is built like a tank. He has nice stout legs with good confirmation, and is the only of the boys I would really want to leave as a buckling. He was strong from the start. He is one of Houdini and Jet’s quadruplets.
Houdini’s Buckling #2 - Reserved - Born 2/21/2019 - This is a beautiful all black boy (the only one of Houdini and Jet’s quadruplets that isn’t a Gray Agouti).
Houdini’s Buckling #3 - Reserved - Born 2/21/2019 - This is the third boy of Houdini and Jets quadruplets. He grew a little slower the first couple days because we grafted him onto our other doe Jeena. He’s growing fast now, and will be a friendly wether from all that initial handling.
Chip’s Buckling - Reserved - born 3/1/2019 - This little boy, like his twin sister, is solid black. He did need a little boost from some selenium gel as his legs were a little weak for the first couple days but he is looking great and bouncy as ever now.
Fred and George Weasley (June 2017)
Fred and George were the kids of Houdini and Norris. They were triplet bucklings (though unfortunately one buckling did not make it). They were super friendly with beautiful white/light gray fiber. They were sold to Busy B Urban Homestead in June 2017.
