The mohair spread around the world from Turkey as a product of Ankara Goat. Therefore, Mohair Goat is known as Ankara Goat (Angora Goat) in world literature. Ankara Goat was taken to Anatolia from east of Caspian Sea by Turks in the 13th Century. Ankara Rabbit is being raised in a few farms and their population is only about one thousand.
