"Would you believe that my father brought in 150 Angora goats to help clear those first acres?" Blair asks. "They kept nibbling off all the new growth around the stumps and finally killed off the pines and scrub oaks after three years or so. And shearing that long angora wool helped him make a living, along with the sawmill he set up."
