About the Angora Goat
The Angora Goat taxidermy mounts are a great addition to any trophy room. The Angora is named after Ankara, Turkey and are well known for their production of the high-end fiber called mohair. A single goat can produce between 4-5 kg of mohair a year and they are shorn twice a year. Despite the characteristics of their coats they are not directly related to sheep. They are generally smaller than other domestic goats and sheep.
The Angora goat has a very pleasant personality but they are not very hardy creatures. At birth, they have to be completely protected from the elements to make sure that they survive. They are originally from the region known as Asia Minor but today they are bred and raised all over the world.
