In October of 2007 I moved to North Carolina. Before long I decided to get some chickens. Then my neighbors gifted me with some guinea fowl. Next, I needed dogs to protect them from predators. Matt Dillon and Miss Kitty, my Akbash LGD (livestock guardian dogs) discovered that they really liked guarding the neighbor's goats. So, after doing some research (see: Pygora Breeders Association; www.pygoragoats.org) I chose to raise fiber goats.
