    Anyone have these?
    I think they would be fun to raise.
    Pictures and info would be nice.

    I have some angora goats. They are great laid back goats. You don't have the problems with keeping them in like other goats but you do have to shear twice a year. Here's a picture of a couple of mine.

    she said you dont have problems keeping them in. I would assume that they dont raom like some goats do. or they dont try to escape thier enclosure.

    They don't seem to "test" the fence or climb like other types of goats.

    So far I have only sold it. I'm hoping to learn how to spin (first attempts weren't good).
