Time for a haircut

Time for a haircut, originally uploaded by mhall209.

This is Snowball. An angora goat that my youngest son raised. She was born right here on our property during a snowstorm. The local goat breeders say that Angoras typically kid (the birth process in goats) during bad weather. This supposedly protects the kids from preditors, as mountain lions and such do not hunt in the rain. I don't know if that is true or not. All I know is when Steven went out to feed the goats that morning, he thought Snowball was litterally a small pile of snow, untill it moved! Thus the name.
