Breeding pair of pearl Satin Angoras.

 Both registered, just produced and raised a nice litter of 6 pearls. Buck is Somerhill Teton, i leg. He is a black pearl (carries chocolate) and has very dense wool with lots of shading on his lower hindquarters. Big, wide body,short shoulder, good lower hindquarters, but more prominent pins than I would like. Has one BOB leg, 8/3. He is just shy of 2 years. Doe is Somerhill Santee. 2 legs. She is a chocolate pearl. Good density, sheen, and nice silky texture. She has a lot of chocolate shading over her body. Good wide doe with short shoulder, nice arch, smoother over the pins, could use a little more muscle on her lower hindquarters. Asking $200 for the pair.

This message is approved (grudgingly) by Del

 4 month old pearl buck, Del Rey, got a "hare cut".  
This is the yarn made from his beautiful fiber.
In return, he got some endive, fresh from the garden.  Good trade.
