Goat, sheep, wool, biking - related passion 集於一身的「洋羊」喜好

Series of wool felt fibre arts for NGO just finished and I'm free to do more biking now.  Riding in the north of Hong Kong is always my favourite area.  I particularly love the indigenous villages.  As a fibre fanatic when I know that one of our biking team members Sam has a herd of goats I was so excited to visit him.  Today we went to his farm in the north...... 
in the village of Cheung Lek
there's the house 
 overhead ripening grapes...... such crispy
Sam has a herd of more than 60 goats
They're so adorable! I'd rather want them as pet.
The goats are kept in pen.  Every morning the keeper opens the gate and let them running to the hill grazing weeds and grasses in the surrounding hills.

They know the way up and way back after a few hours stuff full
and me......after a morning with the herd...

back to biking in the village Kam Tin
This is one of the scenic spots I like to bike and never boring.
My passion of biking, eco printing and wool felting all related. Though the local raised black goats are only for food and we don't have wool supply, I do wish to promote the fibre arts of wool creation. 
My recent teaching for a group of people in the NGO has a series of creation with imported wool. 

Next I will show some more beautiful works..... stay tuned.


  1. Wow! I've never seen so many black goats in one herd. The little kid is very cute.

    1. As urban people I find the running herd wonderful too.

  2. The black goats do look very sweet!
