Shearing Pygora Goats
Pygora goats, a Pygmy-Angora cross breed, are well known for their cashmere like fiber. In order to process the wool, the goat must first be sheared. Doityourself offers a video showing how the procedure is done. The video shows Patti the Garden Girl, from farmersalmanactv.com, doing a quick hoof trim and demonstration of how to shear a Pygora using electric clippers and hand shears. Take a look at the goat’s face while she’s being sheared; apparently those clippers are pretty loud.
