Bucks and Does for Sale
Are you interested in getting started in raising Angora Goats or adding quality animals to your existing herd?
I am often asked about the best way to get started with Angora goats. Here are some different options that I recommend. Keep in mind that Angora goats are rarely happy by themselves. They are species specific and do best when in the company of at least one other Angora goat preferably from their own herd.
1. Wethers (castrated males) have certain advantages. They are less expensive ($150-$250) than registered stock, they are not affected by breeding urges and are generally very friendly. They keep their fine, lustrous locks for many years. If your main goal is to care for animals for their companionship and for their beautiful fiber or to see if Angora goats are for you, then wethers might be the right choice.
2. If you want to experience the birth of a kid, yet you don't want the hassle of a breeding buck on your farm, then purchasing a bred doe ($450 and up) might be the best solution. If you like, you can choose a doe before she is bred and then choose the sire that you think best compliments her. Or you can leave it up to me. I put the bucks in the with the does the third week in August and take them out the second week of November for kids to arrive between the end of January until the end of March. If you want kids born in April, I can accommodate a special breeding schedule. To reduce the risk of the doe losing her kid due to the stress of moving her to a new home, it is best to pick up the doe between two and four months of pregnancy.
3. Maybe you have done all your goat research, tightened the fences, and have a suitable shelter constructed and are ready to try your hand at breeding. I can help you select a non-related buck and doe or does (does $350 and up and bucks $400 and up) so you can begin your own breeding program.
4. Buying kids might work well for you. They are so cute and playful and easy to tame. One drawback is that there is no guarantee on how the kid will turn out. I can show you the dam and sire and make a reasonable prediction however. Kids also require more care their first year because they are more susceptible to parasites.

OR was a big-bodied, fine buck who threw blacks, browns, and reds as well as patterns. (retired)
He was a true brown with a uniform, soft fleece. (retired)
He was a naturally colored buck from registered white parents with an extremely fine fleece.
This is Jiminy (born in 2013). He is a son of Storm (a registered white who was red at birth) with a uniform, dense, kid fleece. Almost all of his offspring show color. (retired)
I think that Richard Wright is one of the best bucks I have ever raised. He is fine and very uniform like his father Jiminy. He has excellent conformation and a sweet temperament. He also breeds true. He puts his "stamp" on his offspring--you can pick them out in a crowd!
Zeke is a beautiful registered white buck from Peavine Hollow Farm. He is fine, uniform, and he has excellent conformation. I used him this year on quite a few of my colored does (many by Richard Wright) with very encouraging results. I am confident that the influence of his genetics will take my goats to the next level!
Miguel ( born in 2018) is a son of Richard Wright, grandson of Jiminy with a very fine fleece. He has very good conformation and has produced some nice kids for me.
This is Charley (born in 2018) a son of Zeke. He is a very long, well built buck with a uniform, dense, kid fleece with tight curls. He has added so much to my herd in body, uniformity, and lock structure.
Rango is a yearling buck. He is not super fine but he has a very black fleece. His mother has held her dark color for years. He could be valuable to a breeder who is looking to add more intense color to her herd. $300
Proven, large-bodied, uniformed buck. $400
This very dense fine-fleeced buck is AAGBA registered. He is a two year old, and although a registered white, he was red at birth. $350
