    This isnt a very good pic, but a couple of 5 yr old bucks with a reasonable horn span. The older buck is much wider and has an extra curl in his.

    My other buck, Heath, at only 2 yrs. Different shape to his horns

    Rams and lambs ... typo Pam? :)

    Those first two bucks probably weigh around the 90 to 100kg mark, Angoras generally arent all that big compared to other goat breeds. Heath was 61kg when I bought him at 1 n a half, he's quite a big boy.

    First time I saw them, I just fell in love with them, and the breed. And thats how I ended up here lol I still think they are the most amazing looking animals (those bucks) on the planet.

    They are very quiet boys. Shearing takes three people per goat!

    Thats actually my wether, Gizmo. I love that pic, and I love Gizmo to bits :love: He doesnt appreciate the hugs all that much anymore. He's turned a bit grumpy in his old age :)

    Not big?? :drool: When you are use too smaller breeds of goats that is big. Love the horns. We have very few goats with horns here on the farm. But soon we are getting a Painted Desert sheep :wahoo: Been wanten one of those. Then we get hopefully a nice rack on him.

    Corax ... yes you have a point there. But to me, they are smaller than my boer and dairy goats, and my sheep. So I think they are little lol
