    Miss MM has Pygora goats, so if you look for her posts I am sure you will bee some, but I have Cashmere. If you go to my website http://www.freewebs.com/sweetgoats you will see lots of them.
    We have the Grand Champion Cashmere goats from the Colorado State Fair every year but one since 2002.

    Pygoras are pygmy crosses. Pygmy/Angora
    They can be a small as the pygmy or as big as Angora.
    They usually have horns but if they carry the polled gene, they can be polled too.
    Any goat can be polled if it has the gene for it.

    the first generation of a pygmy/angora cross (called an F1) is not a "true" pygora. the next generation (when bred to another registered pygora) is an F2 and a "purebred pygora."

    There are a lot of angora / cashmere / who knows what crosses out there, so don't be fooled by "imitation pygoras." Imitation angoras or cashmeres either for that matter.

    just an FYI
