What is Goat Happy Hour?

Goat Happy Hour® is a trademarked term meaning goat therapy. This is ordinarily after the public goat yoga classes but due to the pandemic, we are offering only Goat Happy Hour®. This is all about getting out in nature, surrounding yourself with animals and disconnecting from the stress that the pandemic has brought. This offered to small groups including only the humans you trust to be in your pod.

Are the goats in a separate area while the class is happening?

No, the goats will be free to wander and snuggle up next to you.

Do the goats poop all over you?

Goats have small pellets, and from time to time they do poop on your mat. It’s not messy and all you have to do is shake off your mat. It doesn’t happen all that often, but it does happen. We have to remember they are not dogs or cats but farm animals and they’re just doing their thing.

Do your goats bite or headbutt?

No, but they will they nibble at your zippers/buttons. Yes they do head butt, but they’ve never destroyed anything. They’ve also never headbutted a human before intentionally. They just want to be pet and cuddled.

Do you force the goats to participate?

No. The goats are not forced to stand on your back or do tricks. Our classes are not a required performance for them. The goats genuinely just prefer to be by humans and all they really want is to be pet and receive affection.

Is this a form of Animal-Assisted therapy?

Yes. The focus of this class is not just to take pictures for Instagram. The focus is to combine nature, goats, and yoga in order to disconnect with the stresses of life. Combining those three things is very
therapeutic and works as a happy distraction from whatever you may be going through, whether that be depression, stress, disease, disabilities, or anything.

Are your goats certified therapy goats?

No. Most of the websites selling tags for “therapy” animals are a sales tool for the company. Therapy animals do not need to be certified. You can read more about that in the About section of our website as well as learn more about the difference between Service Animals and Therapy Animals.

Are dogs allowed on the property?

NO, under no circumstances are pets allowed on the property.
