    Today I visited a woment that wanted to sell a couple Shetland Sheep and an Angora wether. While I know a little about the breed and fiber, I am not sure about the pricing of this guy...hoping you guys could offer some input.

    He's about 3 years old, good bulky size, good set of horns. Looks fairly healthy, although he was tethered with a harness, which had worn a scrape on the bridge of his nose. He wasn't happy about being tied (and who would be) but he was approachable and feeling him over he handled just fine. His fiber is a beautiful silver lock. He has curls from the top of his head, almost to his toes! She's asking $100....what do you think?

    I already own dairy goats and cashmere goats, so I'm familiar with living coniditions and what not. Just not with pricing. Thanks.
