At Mohair and More we raise Angora Goats and sell high quality raw and washed mohair. We shear our Goats twice a year and have Kid, yearling and adult mohair available after each shearings in January and July of each year. We also have an online store which carries a large selection of fibers and yarn - visit our store at mohairandmore.com or click on the store tab above.
We are located in a small community 50 miles north of Houston, Texas on approximatly 50 acres of rolling green pastures.
Our herd of registered white angora goats currently number twentysix.
We use 275 gal totes to provide water for our goats when relocating them in areas where no water is available. The totes are moved using my tractor's front-end loader. We are considering building skids so we can move/tow them with the truck or tractor. The totes are fitted with a self watering float valve.
Our feeders are relatively easy to build out of treated 2x4s. They are 34" high, 8' long, with the hoof rail 15" from the ground. The top of the feeder is made from three 2x4x8', one for the bottom, with one nailed on each side and another short one on each end, the top is covered with 4 x 4 grid cut from utility panels.
Once we starting using the feeders it seemed to cut down on a lot of fighting during feeding - they seem to concentrate more on eating. These feeders are a little over 2 1/2 years old and are holding up well.
