Yoga on the Farm with Lindsey Alexander

Looking forward to the Yoga on the Farm with Lindsey Alexander Saturday May 13, 2017.  Both Classes are currently full!


What’s better than baby goats? How about baby goat yoga? Join Lindsey Alexander (RYT 200) for a lighthearted all-levels yoga practice at the wonderful Chapel Hill Carriage House Farm & Gardens on Mother’s Day weekend. There will be two classes, one from 11am-12pm and the other from 1pm-2pm.Plan to bring your own yoga mat or a towel (though a few extras will be available) and wear comfortable clothes you don’t mind getting a little dusty. We’ll be outside among the animals.

These are donation-based classes, and registration is free. The suggested per-student donation is $10. My other goat yoga classes have filled within a few days, so don’t wait to sign up!

This is the Mom

Many thanks to Emily Tysinger who assisted in their births by helping to pull Santiago out followed by cleaning off the wet babies and moving to the pen by the house.  Santiago (a big boy) came first followed by Rosalita (a petite girl), who looks just like her mom. IMG_0199We are praying for good health for the three of them!

Welcome Hancock & Dorothy

Dolley delivered twins today. I have been expecting them for over a week now. Dorothy came first, she is a tri colored blue-eyed girl, followed by Hancock a white with black spots, blue-eyed boy. So thankful for safe and healthy kids!IMG_3572IMG_3570

Lewis & Clark Expedition Part 2

20151204_115156HERE IS A FOLLOW UP LETTER FROM SOME GOATS THAT WERE SOLD AND WENT TO LIVE IN CHATHAM COUNTY….There is another letter on the blog written a couple months ago, I think August.

Hi Mom,

Its Lewis and Clark again, your favorite sons (we better be your favorite sons).  Anyway, its been a hot minute since we last wrote so we decided to send you another quick note.  Life out here in Chatham County is all us little goats can ever hope for.  Our constant supply of scrumptious hay and our daily foraging has allowed us to develop little pot bellies.  We are almost as wide as we are tall (but we’re not fat, we’re just healthy).
The cool weather has allowed us to already prepare for winter.  Our fur coats are thick and plush.  We even have a nice layer of fat under our skin; that will most certainly come in handy when it finally decides to get cold.  Our owners (they’re still cool) have made us up nice warm beds, that any old goat would bleep over.
Now, don’t worry about us not earning our keep here.  Each day we help out around the estate by eating the fallen leaves and the wild onion tops; which are everywhere around here.  However, the onions do give us bad breath, but hey we’re goats and who cares anyway right.
Recently our crazy humans have set up some Christmas decorations around their house.  Personally we think all those blinking lights are a little tacky for our taste, but they seem to like it.  However, we are not quite sure what to make of that darn 5 foot tall inflatable Snoopy dog.  He scares us.
Well our little hooves are getting tired from all of this typing, so Au revoir for now.
Love,   Lewis and Clark
P.S.  We hope Santa brings us each matching diamond studded collars, since we have been extra good this year  (we would be the talk of the town with all that bling).
