died when he was 47. His widow was laid up with a terrible case of poison ivy. My younger brother decided to look through his brother's desk. Some of what he found he photocopied for me and I came across that folder today and was reminded of my older brother's retirement plan of raising goats. I thought for those who don't have such a plan you might enjoy this and possibly take advantage of the information. He died in '77, so the number are from before that time.

The plan involves raising goats. He has it outlined in increments of one year. The first year buy 25 angora goats.... year 2... buy 18 goats with profits from the sale of mohair.. some increase in the herd is from kids born to the goats already present. Then there is year 3, 4 and on up to
the tenth when there is a total worth of $4,238,034. whereupon one sells all the goats.

Now see? There's a plan. So, get busy.

Surely there's also a partridge in a pear tree.

Would the success of such a plan have been dependent on the federal government's mohair subsidies?

I know Sam Donaldson was a collector of the subsidy, and I believe they were terminated in 2012.

I don't know when it began. It could have a connection. My brother died in '77 I think it was. That's an interesting slant and could be what caused him to think of the scheme in the first place.

Your Big Brother was brilliant and would've been a multi-millionaire had he lived and made his home in Oklahoma at the time. California land is tooooo expensive for me to buy Acreage for goats/mohair production , however I did have a really nice mohair sweater once upon a time " green with yellow trim " warm and beautiful it was indeed.

Your brother was not alone. We have still have a few abandoned sheds from the 70's goat herd. A man came and bought the entire herd of 45 or so. He wanted the Great Pyrenees dog in the price. We have one shed with the floor still covered in fur. The feral cats love that shed.

So, are you revealing that all because of a goat scheme, you've been living on easy street since the sale? How's about loaning me about $50? Just for awhile.... or make it $100. or two. You'll never miss it.
