Brown Sugar 2006-2023

He died today. He was our brown Nigora wether. He had pretty fleeces and a wonderful friendly personality. He will be sorely missed.

    Oh, Donna! Your sweet Brown Sugar was SO beautiful!! I’m very sorry for your loss. I don’t recall ever hearing about him before. Not that it matters. I’m so concerned about you losing him. It’s so difficult when we lose a very dear animal. Did you sping any of his beautiful fleece?

      He was be. I knew he was old and starting to dwindle but was still eating well. It is difficult. I have spun his fleeces. The issue is that there are guard hairs in his fleece which are challenging to remove. I should try again.

        I imagine that would be difficult, having guard hairs to deal with.

        You didn’t tell me what he had his head in, in that goofy picture. Oh well, maybe you don’t remember!
