    Hello, we recently got a cashgora goat to add to our two Angora goat wethers. The cashgora is blowing out her coat and she has a regular (albeit soft) coat underneath.

  10. Fuzzy Fibers
    Hi, I'm considering getting either two angora or two pygora goats sometime over the next year, but I'm not sure which breed I should get. This will be my first time owning goats.
