Ain't she sweet?



The top photo is my little Jewel, by Snowman out of Mopsie. She is my pride and joy, and has earned 2 legs so far. The bottom photo is Toffee, by Vinnie out of Carmie. She was born March 9th, and she has not one mat so far. All I did for this pic was smooth her wool with my hands.

LOVELY! Both of them. That otter pattern is so pretty on angora!

Thank you, Elaine! Now if I can just breed an otter buck...

Beautiful! Can't wait to hear all about Nationals :)

Jan said...

Hi Tracy! I'll be posting about Nationals as soon as the official results come out - I don't want to steal any thunder from the show committee - they worked so hard to make it an enjoyable event.

Stay tuned! ;)

Both are gorgeous! I really like otters!

I came back from the MA Sheep & Wool Festival with a Giant Angora! He is a cream and looks very promising.

He may, eventually, need a purebred girlfriend...

Jan said...

Katie,

You already have some gorgeous girls you could breed him to...
Giants are, afterall, just German hybrids!

I would love to see a picture of him! And I will be looking to place Carmie, Toffee's mom, after the next litter. Interested?

Katie said...

Oh, he will get his "fair share" of German cross girlfriends. I can't wait to breed him to my Chocolate Tort!

I'll be taking a picture of him this week, hopefully. He is a sweetheart and very handsome.

As for Carmie...I am very interested in her. I love the otter color.

Well, I'm breeding her this weekend, and I'm going to keep her inside for the pregnancy and birth, at least if this heat keeps up. So this Fall she will wean the litter - when is Rhinebeck? we could work delivery around that.

Katie said...

Rhinebeck is October 21st & 22nd. We are planning on having a booth there.

I took a picture of "Leo" today. It is not the best - the camera was acting up. "Leo's Picture"

Jan said...

How cute! Well, I will either come to Rhinebeck or make arrangements to get her there - assuming the breeding is successful and she delivers and raises a litter, etc. Fortunately, we have lots of time until then - she's getting bred tomorrow.
