Does

The "girls" of the Whistlekick Pygora herd have been carefully selected from top bloodlines for their fiber quality, conformation and temperament. The herd is large enough to provide variety in fiber, but small enough that we know each goat individually. Our goaties are "part of the family" and are handled with love and care. We get a lot of joy out of our interaction with our Pygoras.

The Whistlekick herd is a blend of personalities. In fact, it's almost two mini-herds: a group of more mature does who go about their day sedately grazing, resting and ruminating, and a group of "babies" - the younger does who spend their day interspersing wild bouts of play with their grazing, resting and ruminating. Come meet the girls……..

Note: For an explanation of micron counts, spin fineness and comfort factor, see our Sales & Services Page.
 
Whistlekick's Molly
Molly is the kid who started our love affair with goats (read her story on our home page. Now a grand old lady of 9, Molly rarely honors the rest of our herd with her presence. Since she was raised with our horses before the other goaties came to live here, Molly is convinced that she is a horse, preferring to spend her time with the horses rather than the goats (ok, who are we fooling? If we let her, Molly would be in the house with us).

Lula and her gorgeous daughter, Snow, came to us from Verdant Vistas. Lula is a beautiful doe; square bodied and strong legged with a pretty face and a kind temperament.

For sheer beauty, Snow is IT in the herd. Great conformation and a refined head with luminous eyes and a sweet personality to match. And oh, her fiber…soft, thick, warm, white with a hint of caramel and a beautiful sheen. Snow is a bit more dignified than the rest of the herd, but she will unbend enough to play.

Registered with PBA
Color/Fleece Color: light caramel/white
Fleece Type: A
Micron Count: 20.5 µ
Comfort Factor: 92.8%
Sire: Cattail Meadows Tristan
Dam: Verdant Vistas Snow

Sofia and Samantha are the most nearly identical babies we’ve ever had. But their personalities are quite different. Sofia is a dainty girl, a bit shyer than her sister, but just as quick to get into mischief. She has glossy, long ringlets when in full fleece.

Color/Fleece Color: light caramel/light caramel
Fleece Type: B
Micron Count: 18.2 µ
Comfort Factor: 92.5%
Sire: Cattail Meadows Tristan
Dam: Verdant Vistas Snow

Samantha is the bolder of the twin girls. She’s not a bit shy about asking for a treat or a pat or scratch. And she loves jewelry. If I wear a bracelet or watch into the barn, she has it in her mouth checking it out. Sam has a wonderful, creamy, fluffy fleece. Her fleece won Reserve Champion Doe Fleece at the Autumn Pygora Fleece Show held at the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in 2013.

Fleece Type: B
Micron Count: 21 µ
Spin Fineness: 38.2 µ
Comfort Factor: 90.6%
Sire: Verdant Vistas Aiden
Dam: 4 Bucks Ranch Ginger

You're not supposed to have favorites, but I have to admit that I do and Ginger is it. She is the explorer of the herd. Knowing no fear (and few boundaries), Ginger sets out to explore the world - or at least our farm. A playful, energetic, loving Pygora, she loves to have her belly scratched. Ginger has a soft, deep, thick coat of caramel once a year.
Weeping Willows Taffy Weeping Willows Taffy

Fleece Type: B
Micron Count: 19 µ
Spin Fineness: 21.7 µ
Comfort Factor: 99.1%
Sire: Weeping Willow Pygoras Ezekiel
Dam: Weeping Willow Pygoras Ruth

Even though they are not related, we referred to Ginger and Taffy as "the twins". When they were babies, they looked very much alike and, coming from the same farm, they are devoted to each other. As they mature, you can see differences between them: Ginger is more daring and Taffy has fluffier, curlier, softer fiber. A dream to spin, the feel of her fiber slipping through your fingers as you spin is a treat. As is Taffy herself (except for her voice - somehow, she sounds more like a foghorn than a goat : ).

Spin Fineness: 35.7 µ
Comfort Factor: 88.5%
Sire: Baker Ridge Arvydas
Dam: Peppermint Pastures Pygoras Kora

Colene comes to us from Verdant Vistas. She is one of the shyer goats in the herd. She has an adorable cap of curls that flops over her forehead when in full fleece and the most amazing, soft, abundant, curly fiber. She truly looks like a walking fleece ball when in full fleece. Colene is the proud mama of Contessa.

And what a beauty Grace is growing up to be! 2010 winner of the Doelings, 6-12 month class, winner of the Dam/Daughter class, and winner of the Get of Sire class at OFFF 2010.

She has lovely ringlets and a glossy coat. Gabrielle made us proud this year at OFFF, winning the Get of Sire class with her sister Grace.

Color/Fleece Color:
Fleece Type:
Micron Count: 20.5 µ
Comfort Factor: 89.9%
Sire: Cattail Meadows Farm Alec
Dam: Verdant Vistas Colene

'Tessa' is the single doeling born in the spring of 2011 at Whistlekick Pygoras. She is very affectionate and likes to be right with me when I am working in the barn or field. Tessa is the most independent baby we've ever had. Although she checks in with mom Colene from time to time, you will find Tessa exploring on her own or hanging out with Ginger and her girls. Scratching her neck sends her into raptures of bliss as her eyes close and she zones out. Tessa's fleece is very soft, springy and curly.

Fleece Type: B
Micron Count: 22 µ
Comfort Factor: 86.7%
Sire: HMR LookAtYou Buckaroo
Dam: HMR Curly Shirley

Sally is the second of the two new does from Crickview Ranch. A big shyer than Darcy, Sally is a thinker. She is very willing to accept pats and scratches once she is convinced it is to her benefit. She has wonderfully soft fiber to go with that sweet face.

Color/Fleece Color: Black
Sire: Applebright Farms Filbert
Dam: Crickview Ranch Shotgun Sally

Although my shotguns all are Berettas, I fell in love with Remi at her birth. She is sweet, cuddly and funny and has a beautiful face. And she is growing brown fleece! This is very exciting. All my other black Pygoras have produced grey fleeces. I love Remi’s dark chocolately brown fleece. I look for great things to come from her.
