What's Happening at Goat Knoll
A chatty little diary of more than you probably want to know...

May 5, 2016 When we started this What's Up in 2005, blogs either didn't exist or weren't common. We've decided to update our updates to the more common form and make it a BLOG. The older stuff will still live here, but newer posts will be in blog format. This might even get updated a bit more often. New blog is located here.

February 14, 2016 Now is the time of year that we harvest all the good stuff that our animals have been growing all winter. We start combing out the cashmere from our goats in January and will probably finish up by the end of March. We will be scheduling our sheep to be sheared soon. Kids will start arriving by the end of February and the lambs will come in March and April. We are so looking forward to spring!

This is our setup for combing the goats. We use two stands. See the two curious goats on either side of the aisle? We go through the herd every 2-3 weeks to see who is shedding and comb those who need it. Penned does waiting to be combed. "Might as well eat while we wait our turn!"

This goat is an early shedder. Most of her cashmere was harvested mid-January.
Our Alexandria is always an early shedder. We got a lot from our second pass through and she'll probably release the rest soon.

October 16, 2015 It's finally the time of year when the boys get some "action". We put together our first cashmere goat breeding group last weekend - which means kids in 5 months. Yea!!!

STC Finn is peeking from behind some of his girls. He has the first breeding group - 7 of our does and 2 visiting ladies.
STC Alexander patiently waits for his turn. He will get his group of girls after Finn is done - which will be in about 3 weeks. GK William (the smaller buck - yes he's small now, but he could grow up to be king!) is a promising young buck. He will get a couple girls this year.

October 12, 2015 The new sock kits are here (finally)! The sock kit story: We had all the wool from the 2014 harvest, from all our sheep, mixed and blended with nylon (for strength) processed by a local mill into a fingering-weight sock yarn . When we got it back from the mill this summer, one of the colors was a gray/white blend that just screamed "Sock Monkey"! So, we developed a sock knitting kit and called them sock monkey socks. And as long as we were creating a sock pattern, we created another one with stripes. They were just introduced today and have been selling well.

Shetland wool sock yarn

striped sock kit test sock

Boxes of Shetland wool sock yarn returned from the mill. First thing we did was knit a pair of socks - which became the first test sock for the striper kit.
We dyed some of the sock yarn with a bright color and knit another pair of striped socks.

The first sock monkey test sock. It turned out well, but we thought it needed to be a bit taller and the heel needed to be simplified. More yarn was dyed for the stripers. We found that we liked bright colors for the stries and that any color dyed over the natural brown yarn always looked great in the sock.
test socks knit for kits

And yet more socks were knit to test and revise the patterns. Somewhere in this stage, we bought a sock monkey doll (on Etsy), figuring we needed one as a prop for our photos.
Finally the kits are ready to assemble!

January 16, 2015 We bred 6 of our does earlier than usual, so our first kid was born 4 days ago. Starbright is doing well, She and her mother came out of the kidding stall yesterday and are seeking larger adventures. Starbright is hoping for playmates soon. Maybe today.....

We put a bucket of greens in the kidding stall. It's too soon for Starbright to eat greenery, but she is curious about what her mother so eagerly digs into.

January 6, 2015 The last of our processed wool and cashmere from 2013 harvest arrived back from the mill today. It seems that mill processing takes forever these days, but the end product is very nice.

July 26, 2014 May and June 2014. The lambs arrived! We had only 3 - a light (and late) lambing year for us. The three lambs are white and extremely plump and well. We named them Penelope, Circe and Odysseus.

July 26, 2014 March 2014 - Our kids arrived! Only 9 this year and saldly, we sold them all. We learned early on, if you don't sell most of the kids, eventually you will either have more goats than your land will handle or you will need to stop having kids. We kept several from the year before so felt the need to let them all go this year. We had a great time watching them being born and growing up.

January 6, 2014 I finished weaving a set of rugs woven from our Shetland wool. Five of them were Christmas presents for my siblings and one was mine, all mine. Here are photos of the process and the finished product.

Calculatins for weaving

measuring the warp

First comes calculations - a lot of them. How much wool will I need and how do I set up the loom.
Measuring out the warp threads - 9 yards of cotton rug warp in black and blue.
Preparing the weft yarn - I used yarn from my stash of handspun Shetland yarn, all of it from our resident Shetland sheep. Fortunately we have sheep in a variety of colors, so the rugs will be colorful.
Setting up the loom - this would be putting all those black and blue, 9-yard threads in order and tying them up. This is tedious and takes a while.

Beginning to weave - 6 rugs in a row. 5 of them will be Christmas gifts, one of them will be mine (all mine).
Five of the finished rugs (the gifts). Each is about 2' X 3'. All turned out cool!

December 26, 2013 We purchased a new Shetland ram from Thunderhead Shetlands in late December. He is white and his name is Thunderhead Primus. We are off to a late start breeding our Shetland ewes, so won't have lambs until June 2014. We like keeping a variety of colors in our Shetland herd and our flock has been darkening over the past few years due to use of darker rams for breeding. The new guy should shake things up.

August 24 , 2013 We weaned our Shetland lambs last weekend. We ended up with 5 ewe lambs (3 of them sold) and 1 ram. We attended the first (hopefully annual!) Wren Midsummer Spin In this month and had a great time. Our current mission is cleaning out the barn. Our system is to add layers of straw during the fall, winter and spring when the dirt barn floors become dirty or wet, and then each summer, we muck the whole thing out and use this glorious goop for mulch on our garden. Our garden has thrived on natural fertilizer and mostly bug and predator-free. After all these years with no deer problems, the deer discovered our garden last week. We used to have a Border Collie and another dog who lived outside in this area. We lost both of our dear friends due to old age - the last one a month ago. So, now I have another method to keep the deer out of our garden until we get another dog. We are thinking about the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival, coming up the end of September - which goats to take for show and display, which fleeces to enter in the fleece competition and which classes to sign up for. We've been experimenting with natural dyes on our yarn - so far with indigo and logwood - with beautiful results. Some of these are for sale in our online store.

Glorious garden goop (a mixture of partially-composed goat poop, urine and straw) in it's new home on our garden. This keeps the moisture in the soil, to minimize watering. It also prevents most of the weeds and continues to compost here, adding nutrients to the soil for future gardens.

July 11, 2013 Where has the time gone and what have we been up to? Well, since May 2012, Linda went to Canada to help with the CCPA cashmere fleece competition, we traveled to Estes Park. Colorado, for the Wool Market (twice! - 2012 and 2013), we made a trip to Iowa to retrieve four 4 bucks, we went to OFFF and Black Sheep Gathering, we took a vendor booth to the Newport Spin In, the Mission Mill Sheep to Shawl and the Spring Fiber Sale at Abernathy Grange in 2013, we weaned kids, we sold goats, bred goats, kidded and lambed again (2013) and just weaned our first batch of kids. Other than that, we haven't done much. We weaned 20 of of the 27 kids born July 5th. All are doing well. They've discovered it's almost as much fun to eat the stuff in their new field as be with their mothers. Also, these nice people feed them grain and throw garden weeds over the fence. It's been a great spring and summer is looking good! We have kids for sale again! And we have our winter hay in the barn!

May 26, 2012 It's been a great spring! Except for the rain. Here's an update: Kidding and lambing are done. We had 25 kids (mostly bucks...sigh) and 6 lambs (mostly ewes). We hosted the NWCA 2012 Cashmere Fleece competition and attended (with goats!) the 2012 Mission Mill Sheep to Shawl event.

This is Mae, one of Evie's 2 ewe lambs. She is one day old here. Definitely cute! This is the lighthouse at Yaquina Head, Newport. In February, we took a "sta-cation" and took day trips to the coast, visiting and photographing the nine lighthouses. Mostly it rained, but it was good to get away and we got some interesting lighthouse photos - some you can almost see through the fog!

Of course spring (actually January - March) is harvesting season for cashmere. We spent quite a bit of time combing the goats. this is Nora's raw fleece. It looks small, but is over 5 ounces. That is a lot!

September 2011 We survived another Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival. It is exhausting, but fun and motivating. We took goats to show and display and took a class in dyeing with indigo and cochineal.

Not sure why Paul posed for this photo. Must have caught him in a weak momment. Or maybe he didn't think it would end up on the web. (Don't tell!)

August 6, 2011 Summer has been good. Here's an update: Kidding and lambing are long-past done. Kids (21 final count) have been weaned and we're weaning our lambs (4 ewes!) tomorrow. The garden has finally taken off and we're living on the veggies it produces. We've been trying to do more with mulching in the garden this year. The mulch - provided from the old bedding/goat poo in the barn - keeps the plants thriving and their weeder hanging out with the Maytag man (Don't tell Paul). Since we have to clean out the barn and put the stuff somewhere, this seems to work better than just spreading it on the garden plot when it's done in the fall. We bought a new breeding buck yesterday. We still have our wonderful SWC Mithril and use him when we can, but FXMF Cinnamon Bear has arrived for the does' viewing pleasure. We also built a new barn for our sheep. And last, and probably least, we acquired another barn cat.

It's done! Sheep are happy! We're happy! Our friend Clint Boatright of Castlestone Home Builders & Design, Dallas, constructed the building. Most of the dimensional lumber came from wood milled from trees on our farm. My parents provided the sign.
This is Ghost, the new barn cat. We acquired him from a niece. He had less-than-perfect house habits. Once adjusted, he does quite well in the barn. He has learned: you can choose your own bathroom spot and no one yells at you, stay away from Diedre (a cat) - she owns the barn, and those nice people who brought you here in a cage aren't so bad after all.

March 27, 2011 We've had a great spring! And it's just barely spring. We have 16 kids so far, with 5 does left to kids. Our cashmere is harvested and our sheep our sheared. Lambs are due after the last of the goats kid. Sounds like we even had a plan this year. We even managed to slip in a week to Kauai.

January 20, 2011 We are getting ready for the kids! and the lambs! Kids should start arriving late February. We're excited, but not quite ready. We've done the pre-kidding vaccinations on the does, but need to get the kidding stalls cleaned out. Maybe this weekend. We have 19 "does in waiting." It will be lively arounhd here soon!

October 10, 2010 (10-10-10!) We had an exhausting weekend at Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival, September 25th and 26th. We took 10 goats to the event for show and display and we entered the skein of cashmere yarn that didn't get finished in time for Black Sheep Gathering. Maybe I'll make something out of it to enter next year at Black Sheep. The goats did well--see below and the yarn won the skein competition--see below. Now that all that excitement is over, we can settle down to putting the girls (does and ewes) in their breeding groups and getting ready for our winter Holiday Fairs in November.

Mickey the cat and his Charkha June 21, 2010- We attended Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene, Oregon. Had a great time! We took classes in cottom spinning and inkle weaving. I bought a Charkha - a beautiful 2001 Bosworth attache. It makes cotton spinning fast and very portable. We took it on our recent vacation to Lake Chelan. We also have hopes that it will enable faster spinning of cashmere. I was working on a 3-ply skein of cashmere yarn in May to enter at Black Sheep, but I couldn't finish it in time. Mickey likes to "help" spin cashmere. It puts his people at ground level where he can get an occasional pat.

May 22, 2010- It hasn't even been a month and we're listing news. See, we can improve. We weaned the kids today, so it is a little noisy outside right now. The mothers didn't seem to care; they headed down the field towards the pond. The babies seem to be enjoying their new pasture without "big goat" competition:

April 30, 2010 - Now, if this was a real blog, we would have updated it daily and maybe "tweetered" you in between with the latest (boring) news, but it's not...so...

We've had a fun and busy spring: The farm has 22 new kids and 8 new lambs. We've harvested our cashmere and sheared our sheep. We put in a new fence line so our big boys have access to brushy areas further from the buck shed. Our greenhouse is full and we have a good start on the garden. Other than that we have't done much. Here are new photos (and we'll try to update this thing a little more often):

November 11, 2009 - A Labor Day surprise: We had just returned from a friend's house visiting their new cashmere goat kids. They had used one of our bucks to breed their does in July for early kids. We came home in a hailstorm to find a new little surprise of our own in the pasture. We had made a note that one of our doe kids had escaped briefly from her weaning group into the pasture next door with the buck and the "visiting ladies". We weren't worried as our doe kid was only 3-1/2 months old. Apparently, Penny had visited the next pasture for a reason. After a rough start, little Hailey and young mother Penny are doing well. Like my brother, Jerry, said, "If you don't talk to your kids about sex, who will?!"

September 28, 2009 - We just got back from Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival in Canby, Oregon. We took goats for pen display and for the Cashmere Goat Show. Our promising young lad GK Raider was awarded Grand Champion Buck. Raider is a young buck, born February 2009, son of SWC Mithril, one of main breeding bucks. Photos from the show:

February 28, 2009 - The kids are here! Finally! Stop us if you've heard this before. Just goes to show you we don't tell you what's happening often enough. We have 11 kids so far (the last was born this afternoon). We have one doe (Mini-Me) left to kid. All the kids are silver so far just like last year. SWC Mithril has been an awesome herd sire for us and produced a nice crop of kids this year and last. Due to the timing of kidding this year, we are combing the pregnant does to harvest their cashmere, but we sheared the rest of the herd at the end of January. Blah...Blah...Blah...you don't want to hear all this, you just want to see photos of the kids. Right? Here they are:

April 15, 2008 - The kids are all here! Finally! The last kid and last lamb were born last Tuesday. Our final count for the year is 11 kids and 7 lambs. All are thriving and enjoying the sunshine outside (between the frequent rain showers). The book Shear Spirit was released today. We quickly read our advance copy last weekend. It is a wonderful book full of fascinating stories of fiber farms, beautiful photographs and intriguing knitting patterns - and we're not just saying this because we're in it. If you have an interest in such things, you will definitely want to check it out! You can find it on Amazon and other places.

March 26, 2008 - We've been lambing! There are six lambs so far with one ewe left to lamb at any moment. We are hoping the lambs will finish up before the goat kids start to arrive. The lambs are cute, healthy and bouncy. We have only 7 bred cashmere does this year, so the kid crop will be small. We expect that there will be 10 - 15 kids born during the first part of April.

June 2, 2007- You'd think as little as we update this that we don't do much. NOT! We had 27 cashmere kids this year with the first arriving on January 31st. All but two of the rest of them were born in the two weeks following. One straggler was born mid-March (Friday, a silver doe) and the last (Luna, a spunky light brown doe) was born mid-April. All kids except the last two have been weaned. We've received our 2006 cashmere harvest back from the processing mills and now have a full color line of cashmere rovings available for sale again. Our 2007 harvest has been sent to a new mill in Montana to be made into laceweight yarn. We had 5 new lambs (4 of them ewes!) to add to our Shetland lamb flock. Our newfound weaving "habit" consumes a lot of yarn, so an added supply of wool for yarn will be nice. Our biggest event of the spring was the completion of a new greenhouse. Just goes to prove, you don't need carpentry skills if you have good instructions (and lots of persistence!) We are getting ready to attend Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene where we will share a vendor booth with Foxmoor Farm.

April 2007 - The highlight of April (besides the birth of Luna) was the visit of photographer Gale Zucker and her son Leo. Gale is the photographer for a new book, Shear Spirit that will be coming out in April 2008. The author is Joan Tapper and the book will feature 10 fiber farms including Goat Knoll. The book is a collection of stories about fiber farms and knitting patterns created by the fiber producers using their fiber.

September 16, 2006 - It's been a busy summer, but we are finally starting to wind down for the winter. We had our first garden in years and spent time weeding, watering, harvesting and canning/freezing the bounty. You might wonder what a garden has to do with goats. Our soil is clay here and it is an effort to get any plant to survive, let alone thrive. When we cleaned our our barn last fall, we hauled it all to our designated garden spot. We dug the "barn produce" into our soil this spring and planted a garden. It thrived! We realize now that our goats were not just making a mess in the barn all winter, they were manufacturing garden soil. We put our breeding groups together September 2nd, a month earlier than usual. We decided to try kidding earlier in the year so our kids would be available for sale earlier in the spring. It eems that customers always want kids before they are available. Not wanting to make impatient customers wait any longer than necessary, we've decided to move things up a month. We've read articles on lambing that suggest an advantage of early lambing is to encourage ewes to lamb in the barn (to avoid the nasty weather) rather than in the far corner of the back 40. We are breeding a total of 22 does, using 3 different bucks, so we expect around 40 kids in February 2007. Two of the bucks used are silver and one is red. We are anxious to see the results of these matings We are still waiting for our 2006 harvest to be returned from two different processing mills. We are anxious to see the quality produced by these new mills.

2 breeding bucks Thunderbolt and Ronin - the two "main men" for 2006. Thunderbolt got 6 does and Ronin got 15 (but who's counting?). We used our older buck Quinn for one more breeding before he leaves for Tennessee. That dark shadow in the lower left is the professional photographer.

June 20, 2006 - We've been busy since the last entry. The kids are all here and due to be weaned this week and next. Our final count was 41 kids and 2 lambs. Of the 41 kids, only 13 were doe kids. We wethered all but two of the buck kids. Needless to say, we have lots of wethers for sale. :-) We've sent off this year's fiber harvest to two different processing mills to be made into rovings for spinning.

March 13, 2006 - The kids are here! The kids are here! Finally, our first kids have arrived. So far we have four. Spirit, a black doe, had two strapping boys early Monday morning. Mini Pearl also had twins late Monday evening. All kids are thriving under the care of good mothers. We eagerly await more...Most should be here by the end of March.

January 15-16, 2006 - We sheared the goats! This was a couple of weeks earlier than normal, but they were shedding. Before we sheared, we took "before" photographs of the goats and graded their cashmere. They also got a hoof trim and a visual appraisal. This is a time we make notes of who we want to keep, who we want to sell, and who needs to be culled. We put down more straw in the barn for them to snuggle in to. They will be cold for a couple of weeks, but we will give them extra food and make sure they have plenty of barn space to hang out in. We have a nice stack of fleeces that will need to be sorted, the grading checked and shipped off for processing into rovings and yarn.

November 20, 2005 - We disbanded our breeding groups and settled everyone in their designated spots for the winter. It's good to have the bucks back in their winter pasture - less pressure on our fences.

October 22-23, 2005 - We put together the last of our breeding groups this weekend. We have two breeding groups this year. 17 does are with Quinn, an awesome silver buck we have used in past years. The other group (8 does) have "dates" with Martok, a promising younger buck. We used him once last year with good results so we are anxious to see what the results will be with a larger group of does. Our kids in 2006 will arrive during the month of March, some possibly as early as the first of the month, with most near the end of March.
