A little peek?
At the last minute, I was invited to come to a fiber festival in north western Ringoes, New Jersey. It was at the Woods Edge Wools Farm owner by Linda Berry Walker and her son Brendt. What a beautiful farm and what a wonderful operation! They raise about 300 llamas and alpacas. There were baby critters everywhere from new born llamas and alpacas to a whole pen of about 20 young gelding in the middle of the beautiful show barn. Take a look at their website if you get a chance. http://www.alpacasllamaswoodsedge.com/
Always glad to promote the angora rabbit as a small fiber pet and companion animal, I thought I would go and asked my friend, Donna Mcgraw, to come along. It is so much fun to talk to people about angora rabbits and to watch the look of wonderment on their faces. Donna is really good at talking about the breed and gave a wealth of information to potential bunny owners. Part of the festival requirements was a one hour demo at the front of the show barn and Donna and I shared duties by each doing a demo. Donna showed how to pluck down her beautiful tort doe, Raisen on Saturday and I talked about grooming angoras with Posy (shown above) on Sunday. Too busy to take pictures, but I am sure Donna got to take some. It was alot of fun and we enjoyed showing off the angora rabbit and fiber to the world outside of bunny shows.
