sage advice re getting Angora Goats
Angora goats can be really difficult, they seem to succumb to parasites and other stressors more easily than most dairy goats. If you raised dairy goats in FL then you probably know about the resistance that parasites are developing. If I got angora goats again, I'd want to put them on ground that had not had any goats or preferably any stock on it for a couple of years, and pen them for a few months feeding them herbal dewormers as well as running fecals and treating any signs of parasite eggs. I'd probably want to get them in from a northern clime, lol. (Sorry, no slam against my southern farmbuds intended but ....I'm just sayin'.) At least be sure to see farm records of fecals and deworming treatments. Not everyone keeps them. This could be difficult. Don't try to keep them on small acreage, you need to be able to rotate pastures. You also want to have a pair of lgd to protect them from predation from land, see, and sky.

That's all I can do for now off the top of my head. Got company, so have to get out of here! <grins>
