New books and a gift
The Completely Angora book was a find at a library book sale that a friend found. It is incredible! I think he paid 82 cents or something for it, and he still gave it to me after he found out it is worth a bunch more (true mark of a friend). Unfortunately it is out of print. Not too technical and very in depth. I can't imagine what else I might need to know about angora rabbits that isn't in there.
The Sheep and Goat medicine book is very good as well. It has an appendix with common goat and sheep medicines (including off label) and their dosages. It is written primarily for vet students (with a biology background I still needed to look up a few words) but it isn't too hard to follow. It retails for $105.00 but I found it at http://www.jefferslivestock.com/ for $89.00. I feel happy to have found both of these resources.
