The Ovie Ranch specializes in raising pasture fed Angora Goats.  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. 

Angora Goats!  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 the ranch. 

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 handspinning, weaving,  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.
