Meet some of the beautiful animals at MacGregor Hollow!
Breeding for angora goats with color is a newer venture in goat keeping. Hand-spinners like to use the naturally colored fleeces to make beautiful yarns. They are a medium sized goat with docile, laid back personalities. We have a small herd of wonderful angora goats and breed for show quality animals with fine fleeces and strong conformation. Melanie has a passion for understanding and using the knowledge of colored angora goat genetics to produce goats with interesting patterns and white spotting markings.
