Welcome to the Ovie Ranch!
Angora Goat Products
Ovie Ranch specializes in raising pasture fed
We have a small flock of 8 does which we primarily raise for fiber (mohair).
We have mohair fiber, breeding stock, and kids available
for sale. We don't use herbicides on our pasture, and we feed
organic grass/alfalfa hay during the pasture non-grwowing season.
We do vaccinate our flock as needed, and treat for parasites (internal
and external) as necessary.
We still have a couple of adult white mohair
fleeces (each approx. 4-5 lbs. skirted). We also have a young
adult black-gray mohair fleece (also approx 4-5 lbs skirted). We
will start shearing in early to mid-April 2016. We'll have various
white and colored adult fleeces available then. See
mohair for sale portion of our website.
We have a small herd of Angora goats on
the Ovie Ranch. They are part of the pasture management team at
Angora goats love to browse on trees and brush as well
as a little bit of everything else. Our acreage is native juniper,
sagbrush, and perennial grasses and forbs. The goats do well on
our native pasture, however we are in the process of trying to do more
restoration treatments to our pasture(s). The juniper and
sagebrush are thicker than necessary in some areas, the goats are doing
there part to reduce soem of this overstory. As we reduce the
overstory, we are planting more native forbs and grasses. We
supplement the goats diet with hay in the winter. Our Angora goats have a
friendly inquisitive nature.
Mohair is a soft, strong, warm, lightweight, and lusterous
all natural fiber from Angora goats. It is suitable for
felting, or blending with other fibers such as
wool. When blended with wool it will add strength and luster.
Mohair also makes good doll hair, doll
wigs, and Santa beards.
