At our goat yoga events we talk about animal assisted therapy. It is known to have substantial effects on our psyche to be around animals. Obviously on our farm, we are surrounded by animals. The goats provide a lot of entertainment (and annoyance sometimes).
One thing I continually do is use the goats as MY animal assisted therapy. Recovering from surgery, a depressing day at work, boredom have all been brightened up with a goat visit. We recently had babies and our neighbor had a freak accident and broke her leg. She was confined to the house and was feeling down. I asked if she wanted a goat visit and she said it definitely brightened her day. Here is a picture of Joey and I on a “goat therapy” session.
I am attaching pictures of some of the babies because even LOOKING at goat babies helps you feel more relaxed!
These are some of our recent babies. Kong is a beautiful buckling that will be for sale.
