Perhaps it's a goat's world and we're just living in it.


Goats, and I'm not talking about "Greatest of all Time" type of GOATs here but the actual four legged animal, are somehow the hottest new pet idea.

Now you can actually send your friends and family a "goat-a-gram" thanks to an inventive and fun company in Waco.

Does it seem like the popularity of goats have risen over the last several years? It does to me. The internet really loves goats (especially screaming goats and baby goats), and as I've seen so many internet goat stories I've started to wonder why I don't own a goat yet.

Turns out goats may have been the original "man's best friend." Here are some fun facts about goats I found at

  • Humans were taming goats as far back as 9,000 years ago
  • Goat meat is the most popular meat in the world per capita
  • You can teach a goat it's name, just like a dog
  • Goats live span is almost identical to that of a dog
  • A goats pregnancy is five months and they usually about 2 kids(as goats are called) per year.
  • Goats can become depressed if they don't have other goats around to keep them company. It's unhealthy for a family to only own one goat as a pet.

It's taken some time but goats are finally getting their due. Just look at social media. Goats are all over the internet with hundreds of thousands of followers.  From goat yoga to goats in trees to beer drinking goats, I can only hope to one day be as popular as a goat.

Now we have Goat-A-Gram. Why just send flowers or candy when you can send flower, candy, and Rose the goat?

Goat-A-Gram is a new business venture from Kristen Rowin of Lorena. She'll bring Rose with her to help make the occasion a very special event. Rose will even get dressed up to deliver flowers, candy, or whatever type of gift you want. Flowers are great yes, but even better with some quality goat time.

Rowin tells KXXV 25,  "I think people figured it out a long time ago when they started incorporating animals for a calming effect, they just, you know those endorphins go crazy when you see a little tiny goat."

Rose is available for all kinds of occasions like birthday parties, anniversaries, and just about any reason you can think of. You can schedule anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour with Rose.
