Dr. Harry Says: There are lots of different types of goats, all bred for different purposes. Angora goats are raised for their fleece, which is called mohair (not Angora fleece as you would expect – this actually comes from rabbits!). Angoras are medium-sized, easy-to-handle goats and make great pets – and as they’re herd animals, you need at least two. To keep up to three goats, you’ll need at least half a hectare so they have room to graze and browse – they love to stand up on their hind legs and eat shrubs! On top of grass and shrubbery, they relish a little lucerne hay and milled grains. Annual vaccinations and regular worming are essential, and they will need to be shorn twice yearly. Their fleece grows at over 2cm per month and hangs down in ringlets – it’s highly sought after and valuable, too, fetching about three times the price as the same weight of run-of-the-mill wool.
