There’s a farm in Virginia that was looking for volunteers to help with a very important task: keeping baby goats warm in the winter.
According to ABC News, Caromont Farm is expecting a number of baby goats — technically they’re called “kids” — to be born around mid-February. So they asked for volunteers to help take care of them in shifts. Even though the kids are given little goat sweaters and personal heaters, they still need to be bottle-fed and yes, snuggled.
Naturally, people jumped at the opportunity to cuddle with them (who wouldn’t?!) and all the shifts were quickly taken. But before we all weep at the lost opportunity, you should know that the farm has decided to throw a “Goatapalooza.”
What is a Goatapalooza, you ask? It’s an event on April 3 from 12 PM to 4 PM where you can eat cheese (they make it on the farm), listen to local tunes, and yes, mingle with some super cute kids (of the animal and human variety).
What more could you want?
Now if you’ll excuse me, I gotta see a man about some goats.More On
