It seems there is much more activity at our former "primary" site from people who did not often post........ sometimes change is good

:) New posts, new posters, old posters. (hmm....I have an old poster up in the craft room...lovely thing from Hubble Telescope...but I digress)

It's nice to see activity everywhere. I've noticed more activity on my yahoo groups, too. Maybe it's a release of tension from the Holidays? On the Angora formum I'm on they're gearing up for a couple of shows, so it's mostly that.

I've stopped sharing the images and stories, as per requested, on the HT rabbits...moved some of them to PET forum :) I'd like to hear from some of the folks who raise angoras for fiber profit to see how they do it...where do they market, etc. Maybe I need to post in a couple of places :)

From the beginning I have viewed RabbitTalk as an additional place to discuss rabbits, not as a replacement for other great sites like HT. I think most of us visit both sites and I'm pleased about that. The more the merrier!

Ann, I think it's a great idea for you to start some specific topics in the Angora section to get the ball rolling there. :)

I've been having trouble at the other site - having to login every time, then yesterday, it kept logging me out while I was still on the site! Tried to post, and was told "you are not logged in". :evil:

Sigh. Thank goodness for this site!

A lot of people have been having problems logging in or staying logged in over there. I understand it is not just HT... all vbulletin boards are having a problem. They'll sort it out in time, I'm sure, but it sure is frustrating when it happens.

don't they send a copy to your email? That's where I always get mine...then I have to remember to actually GO to HT and respond :) and then I can always click on the person's name and then send a response (based on my email message). :)

I'm new to this site and fairly new to rabbits. I have four English Angoras. Whew, lots of work! What is HT?

Ann, I just took a drop spindle lesson at my local yarn shop. I didn't really learn much that I didn't already know from a book I bought, but at least I know I'm not doing anything drastically wrong. Anyway, when I left, the owner of the store asked me to sell her some Angora yarn when I got to spinning it. At this point, I am terrible at shearing and not sure I even have any usable fiber. We'll see if I can ever spin anything worth selling. But, you might want to check local yarn shops and see if they'd be interested in buying yarn, if you spin, or maybe even fiber? You've probably already thought of that idea, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.

Cindy

Cindy....AHHH. Good idea. I had forgotten about the local shops because they're just so PRICEY!! but that means they'll pay for angora :D WONDERFUL idea!! Thank you.

and it isn't really hard to make usable yarn from even poorly shorn wool :) (trust me...I suck at shearing bunnies, so I pluck ;) ) I'm sure your yarn will be great. Good to go with a spindle first with it so you get the hang of spinning the stuff more slowly. I'm trying on my wheel and it's....challenging for me so far.

Don't forget, you Angora folks, that substandard wool can be used to make the most wonderful felt. I'm thinking Angora felt slippers! How cozy is that?

cindy I'm going to cut and paste your comment into a new thread over in wool fibre rabbits - hoep thats ok but this is an interesting discussion that should be viewable in the wool thread I think ;)

I'll comment there and hoep other folks do too :)

I know this is old, but... *gasp* that thought is absolutely SINFUL, Maggie!!! Good heavens, that would be soft! :P
