Baby Goats Need Your Old Winter Sweaters ASAP!

I love goats. And if I’m being honest, I love baby goats even more. And if I’m being really, really honest, I love baby goats in sweaters the very most. And I can only imagine how much I would love a baby goat in a sweater that I once owned. See, my super awesome friend

Watch This Goat Get His Head Stuck In A Chip Bag

When Buzz the goat found an empty chip bag, he couldn’t resist attempting to eat the crumbs at the bottom and got himself stuck. Instead of letting a human (or the family dog) help him get the bag off, he took off running! Maybe he was having too much fun?

Meet Benjamin The Rescued Orphan Pygmy Goat

Benjamin the 5-week-old pygmy goat was born a twin, and his mother was unable to nurse both babies, so Benjamin was rejected. Luckily for him, Tom Horsfield stepped in to rescue the little goat, feeding him every four hours and taking Benjamin to work with him in order to prepare him to someday rejoin other…

Goats In Lust: They’re Just Like Us!

We’d all like to think we’ve evolved way past our animal antecedents, having transcended the baser survival instincts that propelled us from the primordial ooze to this moment. These very instincts have been variously invoked by relationship experts, who will one day have us believing that we’re not that different from our mammalian brethre…

This Baby Goat Trying To Balance On A Chair Is My New Motivation For The Week

If you feel like you’re staring up a giant mountain of endless to-dos this week, try to draw some inspiration from Dynamo the goat. This guy is determined to stay balanced on this inflatable chair, and if he can be so persistent about his goals, you can definitely get through your Monday. [Daily Dot]…

Thank God This Exists: Goats Singing The “Jurassic Park” Theme

Today is my last day at The Frisky. This morning I told the rest of the staff that I wanted to write one story about Nickelback, one story about goats, and one story about Celine Dion today, because those are my main beats/life passions and it seemed fitting to bookend my time here with that…

What’s The Difference Between A Horse And A Playground? Nothing, If You’re A Baby Goat

Reason #4,582 I need a baby goat (or a hundred baby goats, ideally) ASAP: through the eyes of a baby goat, everything is a piece of playground equipment. Even, for example, a very large horse that is trying to take a nap. And isn’t that a great way to look at the world? [Time]…

Life Dream Status: Goat Cafes Are Becoming A Thing

You’ve surely heard of cat cafes, where patrons can have a coffee and a bagel while snuggling a furry kitty, but a new kind of animal dining experience may be sweeping the globe soon, one that I’m WAY more excited about: goat cafes. The trend is starting, as so many weird/wonderful dining trends do, i…

Here Is A Video Of A Fly Going Up A Baby Goat’s Nose

One time, back in college, I was reading a very serious passage of a personal essay to a very serious writing workshop group, and a tiny fly flew up my nose mid-sentence. I started huffing and sneezing furiously before yelling, “I think I feel it crawling into my brain!” and running out of the classroom…

This Is What Heaven Looks Like

I wasn’t even sure I believed in heaven before watching this video, but now I’m absolutely certain it exists, and dearly departed souls are greeted at the pearly gates by an exuberant stampede of baby goats. [Jezebel]…

It’s Time To Cry: Sad Goat Is Reunited With His Burro BFF

Interspecies love stories always make me squee, but the friendship between Mr. G, a goat, and Jellybean, a burro, made me SQUOB. (Squobbing, a word I just made up, is when you are squeeing and sobbing at the same time because something is equal parts adorable and heartwrenching.) Mr. G and Jellybean were both rescued from a hoarder&#8217…

Be My Boyfriend: Dana McGregor, Pismo Beach’s Preeminent Goats Rights Activist

Remember Dana McGregor, the magical SoCal dude who taught his goats to surf? As if his interspecies surfing lessons weren’t admirable enough, he’s now become Pismo Beach’s leading only goats rights activist. His focus switched from surfing to activism in the face of a law passed by the city council that bans goats within Pismo…

I Want To Go To There: Tamri, Morocco, Where Goats Climb Trees

I remember a few years ago when argan oil was first becoming a hot new beauty trend in the states, my boss at the time said, “You know where argan oil comes from, right? Goat poop.” Of course, I initially wrote her off as a goat poop conspiracy theorist, but it’s true. Goats in Tamri,…

OMG: 8-Legged Octo-Goat Born On Croatian Farm

“I counted his legs and I thought I was seeing things. Then I called my neighbour to make sure that I am not crazy.”
Croatian farmer Zoran Paparic, describing his reaction to this 8-legged goat that was born on his farm recently. My response would have been more along the lines of, “WHAT THE FUUUUUUUCCCKKKKK?!??!!&#8221…

Watch This: Screaming Goats Cover The “Game Of Thrones” Theme Song

We’ve seen screaming goats cover hit songs by Katy Perry, Celine Dion, and Jay Z. Wasn’t it only a matter of time before someone synced up a bunch of screaming goat clips to recreate the “Game of Thrones” theme song? The surprising thing about this video isn’t so much that it exists, but that it&#8217…

Meet The “Geep,” A Goat-Sheep Hybrid That Will Steal Your Heart And Save The World

These days we have plenty of evidence that civilization is going to hell in a handbasket: Farrah Abraham’s erotic novelist career, elected officials making laws based on the belief that women are nothing more than barely sentient baby factories, the continuing existence of James Franco. BUT WAIT! There is finally a reason to celebrate, a beacon of…

Newspaper Issues Important Correction: Human/Goat War NOT Happening (At Least For Now)


Best newspaper correction ever? I think so. The Argus, a newspaper based in the U.K., ran an interview last week with Richard Robinson, the director of the Brighton Science Festival, and solicited questions from readers. In some kind of extremely unfortunate punctuation mix-up, two craaaaaazy quotes submitted by a paranoid reader about an imminent,…

4 Goats + 1 Bendy Piece Of Sheet Metal = Endless Entertainment

If you saw a bendy piece of sheet metal stuck in the ground, you’d probably think, “Ugh, what an eyesore.” Goats, as evidenced by this adorable video, think, “OMG! A NEW TOY!” and proceed to turn it into a makeshift metal trampoline. Also, I’d like to take a moment to thank the 10 different people…
