Angora Goats
Thanks for visiting my page. Your rabbit is beautiful, really pretty buff coloring! You mentioned wanting advice on raising Angora Goats, we have two, and they are fairly easy to take care of on a daily basis, hay, grain ratio, a mineral supplement designed for goats with selenium and copper, De-wormer every 3 weeks (this can vary) vaccines once a year, clean bedding, fresh water and a grazing area (the more diverse mix of plants the better)Angora goats need GOOD shelter in the winter as they aren't as hardy as some of the other breeds. A lot of their energy goes to producing all that wool, you're in New York, so no stranger to cold winters. Shearing is the most difficult part of raising them. We shear twice a year, in March and September. It's hard work, but if you can get through it the fiber is worth all the trouble. I've also noticed that you get what you pay for. Research breeders and get good bloodlines. We paid more for our goats, but I've talked to people who got "better deals" and their goats and are paying two fold in vet bills. If you have any questions feel free to ask me. I don't have all the answers, but I love goat talk. By the way your birds are beautiful too.
