Welcome to the Ovie Ranch!
The Ovie Ranch specializes in raising pasture fed Navajo-Churro sheep. We have a small flock of 20 ewes and 2 rams of registered Navajo-Churro Sheep.
Navajo-Churro sheep are a rare breed which were first brought to the New World in the 16th century by the Spanish. They are prized for their durable lustrous wool which is especially suitable for hand spinning, weaving and felting. They are a hardy and disease resistant breed of sheep. We also have 10 Angora goat nannies and 1 Angora goat buck, which we primarily raise for fiber (mohair). We have wool and mohair fiber, breeding stock, and lambs/kids available for sale.
Wool is a renewable resource. The girls are glad to make more next year.

We have recently added a small herd of Angora goats to 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. 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.
