SAFE SEX


Last month I sheared the Angora goats leaving long flowing beards on the boys and soft smooth chins on the girls. A good looking group if I do say so myself. Recently I was asked how it is that we operate a no-kill farm. Is it really possible? It occurs to me that this is a very good question with a very simple answer. All of the Rams and Bucks at London-Wul have been altered/castrated/neutered - take your pick. When we wish to add to the farm we purchase pregnant ewes in the Fall so that they can give birth the following spring and settle their family into the fold at that time. Alternately, we have purchased several young animals, already weaned. As we process all of the fibre that we produce plus some, all of the animals living here are contributing members of the farm - simple.
