Speck Angoras was formed in 1986. It is a family project of registered Angora goats involving Fred L.Speck Jr., and wife Linda, and children Trey, Sarah, and Laura. Our goal is to produce goats that have fine hair (with style, character, and long staple length), and an excellent body conformation.
We have enjoyed the
privilege of developing a herd with excellent uniformity of fleece
(ie. same lock style and fineness
on neck, side, and
britch) and excellent fineness of fleece (ie. small fiber diameter).
They also have excellent body conformation. We constantly strive
to improve the
Trey, Sarah, and Laura grew up learning all aspects of raising Angora goats and were very active participants in herd improvement. Trey helped develop the evaluation system. All helped with kidding, routine care, selection, and culling.They also were responsible for grading mohair at shearing time. All were very successful in showing at the major youth Angora goat shows and fleece shows. They were active in 4-H Club activities and were all winners in wool and mohair judging at local, state and national levels. Trey coached the Brazos County 4-H team when he was a student at Texas A&M. His team won first at the National Wool Judging 4-H Contest! He is also an Angora Goat judge and has judged in Texas, Canada, Australia (NATS), and West Virginia. Trey is in an M.D. in an orthopedic surgery residency at UTMB in Galveston. Laura is an M.D. (Dermatologist) practicing in Austin, Texas. Sarah is a teacher in Kerrville, Texas. Her two children, Tyler and Shelby, now help their granddad with the goats and are active showing Angora goats (with great success). Linda helps with ALL aspects, especially in the kidding barn.
