Welcome to Lost Goat Ranch!
We’re a small colored Angora goat farm located in north central Texas. Although our homestead was established in 2018, we didn’t get our first goats until the summer of 2019.
Our goal is to offer mohair and mohair products for sale, along with show-quality goats, and other supplies for yarn and fiber artists. So be sure to check out our Etsy shop and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates and lots of pics of adorable goats!
Why Angora Goats?
When we bought our property in 2018, we did a lot of research about different types of livestock. Phillip grew up raising cattle, and is the quintessential Texas cowboy (right down to his Wranglers, y’all). Aubrey grew up in a rural area, but her experiences with livestock were randomly fleeting; chickens every now and then, about a week with bottle-fed calves, falling off a horse (that was fun), and that one time when she was a child and a goat tried to literally eat the shirt off her back. But livestock had been a dream of ours for years, and while our previous circumstances were not conducive to seeing that dream come true, in 2018 we finally moved out of the city and into the country.
That move meant we could finally get livestock, but what kind? Phillip’s heart is with cattle, but that can be a really difficult endeavor. Not to mention a money suck. We knew we wanted something that we could at least break even on (meaning they would pay for themselves in feed cost), that could help us with vegetation (the 10+ acres we bought is pretty overgrown), and that was hopefully fun.
And thus, our research led us to Angora goats.
