Colored Angora Goats
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 show quality angora goats and breed for animals with fine fleeces and strong conformation. I find that Michigan is a great place to raise angora goats.
I am a member of Spinners Flock, and EAGMA the Eastern Angora Goat and Mohair Association. We usually show our angoras at Michigan Fiber Festival in August each year.

Nemai is our angora wether. He is a wonderful showmanship goat for my children and a special ambassador for angora goats. He is a faded red roan, mostly white with a sprinkling of red.
