Mysty is a blue chinchilla German angora hybrid. In this photo, she is about 10 weeks old.
Harvey is a pure German angora, 50% new import line. Quite a fiber machine! He's got a lot of bone to him also. He will be moving to North Carolina this year, having filled his duties quite well here at Woolybuns.
Born on 4th of July, I had to give him an American history type name. Bun is a black angora, produces a gloriously dense coat, although he does not have the depth of color I am looking for in black.
A very full house!
Look at that depth of color! Elke came to me from Smith Family Farm in Vermont. Her breeding is a blend of some very good German import lines and solid old lines, both pure German and crossbreds, with some tan color genetics introduced a few generations back to bring in extra depth of color. Elke's color is blue Silver Marten.
Luke is a pure German, produces lots of soft wool. A bit too soft. He is a very sweet fella, but the texture of his coat is the kind that tends to get worse with each generation. So, even though I bought him for studly duties, I have not bred him and now he lives with someone else as a wooler pet.
Tinkerbelle is a wild gray agouti color German hybrid. Her bloodlines are a blend of North meets South, meaning I bred rabbits I bought from friends north of me to rabbits I bought from friends south of me. The blend produced a delightfully friendly, beautifully coated angora.
Chuck is a very friendly buck who goes back to my very first angora. His color is called lynx, which is a dilute chocolate agouti.
At far left with nose in the air is an opal (blue agouti). The one in front is lynx (lilac agouti). Between them is the butt of a self blue baby. Next in line are 2 self blacks. Snuggled next to the self black is another lynx, then a self blue, and in front, a self chocolate.
Lynx is an agouti pattern, color is dilute chocolate aka lilac with bands of creamy tan and off white
Freshly sheared and much sweeter than this expression shows.
Two days old. The sables looked like blues, didn't they. Those sables will confound you if you haven't seen the transformation before. Especially the speckled stage.
