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 trifecta. I’d just finished writing my Nickelback story when this link popped up in my Facebook feed: A VIDEO OF GOATS SINGING THE JURASSIC PARK THEME. Not to brag, but I’m pretty sure I manifested this, especially because “Jurassic Park” is, like, my 6th favorite movie of all time. I’m going to listen to it on repeat while I manifest some crazy breaking news about Celine Dion. [Jezebel]

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

Goats Jumping On A Horse!
Let's all jump on the horse!

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

Goat Cafe
Fact: Goats Make The Best Dining Companions

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, in Japan, where Sakuragaoka Cafe has been letting patrons mingle with their two in-house goats for the past few years. The goats have been a huge hit with customers, who come in droves to pet them and bring them treats. Hear that, American restaurateurs? Goat cafes are a thriving business! Let’s make them happen here ASAP, yeah? Even if other people are grossed out by the idea of eating alongside barnyard animals, I will single-handedly keep the venture afloat. Table for 12, please! (That would be me and 11 goats, obvi.) [Modern Farmer]

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

Goat With Fly In Its Nose
Get It Out! Get It Out!

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 in a panic. Basically, what I’m saying is…I know exactly how this goat feels. [Laughing Squid]

10 reasons I'm totally obsessed with goats. Read More »

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’s home earlier this year and were taken to live in separate animal sanctuaries, despite having spent their whole lives in each other’s company. Mr. G was so depressed about being away from his ride-or-die bestie that he was refusing to leave his stall or eat, spending his time writing bad poetry and listening to Daughtry. (I’m kidding about those last two, although Daughtry does provide the background music to this video.) It was clear these two soulmates needed to be together, so Jellybean was brought to live with Mr. G at Animal Place in Grass Valley, California. The minute Mr. G heard Jellybean arrive, he started to perk up and within minutes of being reunited, Mr. G was back to his usual goat self. SQUOB!!! [Huffington Post]

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

10 reasons I'm totally obsessed with goats. Read More »

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 city limits. In January, McGregor begged the council to reconsider. “I talked about all the good things the goats are doing in the community,” he said. “They’re our mascots for surfing and stand-up paddleboard camps.” (Was that not how you were expecting that sentence to end? Me neither.) McGregor has received numerous tickets for letting his goats graze within city limits, but he’s undeterred. “I want what’s best for the city too,” he said. “I’m hoping we can work something out.”  Meanwhile, I’m wondering if McGregor and I can work something out. Like, a relationship. Because as the old saying goes, “When you find someone who shares your pathological obsession with goats, you should marry them immediately. And then go surfing with your goats to celebrate.” Dana, give me a call. [The Tribune]

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, Morocco have learned that a bit of acrobatic climbing of the local argan trees will earn them a sweet snack: argan berries. After enjoying their lunch high up in the trees, they digest the berries, which are then easily harvested from their droppings that fall to the ground. After the berries are removed from the excrement, they’re pressed to make oil for cooking, hair, and skin products. Kind of gross, kind of amazing, but definitely intriguing enough to add “go watch goats climb trees and poop out a high-end beauty product” to my bucket list. [When On Earth]
