Goat yoga is a thing
– and hundreds are lining up for it
And they aren’t kidding!
Every once in awhile, you stumble upon a phrase that immediately incites you to learn more. “Goat yoga” is one of those times!
Bring a Yoga Mat and an Open Mind. Goats Are Provided
says the New York Times
If you Really want to Show your Style -Get your very own
So what’s the big deal you ask? GOATS ! The Goats are the big deal – lay people (those who do not raise goats ) are finally getting it! That goats are awesome creatures and a lot of fun to play with and be around. Those of us Who DO raise goats are thinking.. WHY Didn’t I think of that? Well if you are like me – it never occurred to us that all those hours laying in the grass letting the goats jump all over us and playing with them was a potential money maker – If you can teach yoga and you have goats I suggest to jump on the bandwagon NOW! I’m sure there are many places who need Goat Yoga classes offered – there are just a few now..
And the goats are loving it too. “They want to be where the people are,” says Morse (of the Oregon Goat Yoga Class) . They’ll walk around and sit on the mats and chew their cud, which is so methodical.
Our Favorite (being we are from Arizona) are the Az Goat Yoga classes

Goats being the curious creatures they are and naturally loving, make a perfect combination for stress relief and getting back in touch with nature.
We (heart) Love Goat Yoga as much as we love our goats!
It’s hard to be sad and depressed when there are baby goats jumping around- even adult goats – those eyes will melt you every time – Goat Happy Hour is the best way to describe the time spent doing Yoga routines with the goats – Goats are natural Stress Busters – anyone who has spent countless hours with them will tell you – it is impossible to be in a bad mood around goats . So while Goat Yoga may sound like just a trend, I think this is a trend that will stay for quite awhile.
GetYerGoat™ Presents great Goat Yoga designs. Goat Yoga is the latest craze! Doing yoga at a farm near you with playful goats dancing around and on you during your yoga session – this is nature’s stress buster for sure.
Check out the great Goat Yoga designs we already have to offer in our shop – adding more each week.

From time to time friends and family tell me to lighten up, it’s “just a goat” or, that’s a lot of time and money you spend on “just a goat” but they really just don’t understand.While the following aren’t our words – they do reflect our sentiments.
Many hours have passed and my only company was “just a goat”. Some of my proudest moments have come about through “just a goat” and some my saddest moments have been brought about by “just a goat”. But in those times of darkness the gentle touch of “just a goat” gave me comfort and reason to overcome the moment.
“Just a goat” brings into my life friendship, trust and just a lot of joy. “Just a goat” brings out compassion and patience that make me a better person. Because of “just a goat” I rise early every morning rain, hail or shine, take lots of exercise and look longingly into the future. So, for me and other people with goats, it’s not “just a goat”, but all the hope and dreams, many fond memories and the pure joy of the moment.
“Just a goat” brings out what’s good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. If you too think it’s “just a goat”, I hope that someday you can understand that it is the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being “just a person”. If you understand that it is not “just a goat’, next time your hear that phrase, just smile because they really just don’t understand.
She’s moaning with fullness and her udder is starting to fill out.. Your back is aching from all the bending you have been doing checking her time and time again- Just to make sure…It’s Kidding Season!
At last, the time of year comes when you are ready for babies
OR ARE YOU?
The Time is Near:
Ok.. So now you are looking at your calendar and you DID write down the date of breeding right?.. I know you think you will remember what date who bred who.. But believe me .. You won’t be sure as the times nears. So I hope you did write down not only every time you bred but also any time the buck may have gotten out of his pen and with the girls, this is why we have surprise babies. And yes.. I have had my share!
Time to keep an eye on tail ligaments and other signs of oncoming labor.
Typical Signs of Early Labor (Not necessarily in order):
And when the babies are all on the ground and you can take a deep breath FINALLY- have a cup of coffee or tea in your favorite Kidding Season Mug
I just read a post from my friend on Facebook and she put it perfectly:
Kidding season… what it means to most is adorable baby goats to play and laugh at antics. To goat breeders it means this and more.
Sleepless nights watching your doe for slightest moves , worry about multiple kids getting tangled and the horrors of difficult births, giving doe proper meds prior too and after kidding to reduce risk of milk fever, ketosis, infection, weak kids who won’t thrive and no matter what you do they pass in your arms, a favorite doe that loses the battle after a difficult kidding and passes away in your arms, work of multiple bottles made everyday for hungry littl monsters.
The list of worries go on and on, but regardless of all of these things the wonderful, playful kids , the miracle of attending the birth of every new life on my farm and the amount of love I receive every day is worth every freezing night and worry imaginable!
God Bless ALL of my goat friends and may you have a safe kidding season , if you don’t you can always call your goat mentor, they are happy to help.
