Maaa…maaa…maaaary Christmas

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and what better way to amplify that joy than with the delightful bleats of your pet goats! If you’re fortunate enough to have these charming animals as part of your family, then you know just how much fun they can be. Here’s how to have a Maaa…maaa…maaaary Christmas with your hoofed pals.

1. Deck the Barns with Boughs of Holly

Ensure your goats feel the festive spirit too! Decorate their barn or shelter with some pet-safe decorations. Strings of LED lights (away from their reach) and wreaths made of edible herbs can set the holiday mood. However, always supervise your goats around these decorations.

2. Festive Feasts

Treat your goats to some special holiday treats. Consider baking some homemade goat biscuits made from oats, bran, molasses, and chopped apples. Remember, moderation is key!

3. Goat-Adorned Holiday Cards

Capture the magic of the season with a festive photo session featuring your goats in cute, yet comfortable, holiday attire. Think soft Santa hats or reindeer antlers. These pictures can be used for personalized Christmas cards, sure to bring a smile to any recipient’s face!

4. Gifts for Goats

Just like the rest of your family, your goats deserve some gifts under the tree. Consider buying them new brushes for grooming, enriching toys, or even a new, cozy blanket for those colder winter nights.

5. Caroling with the Goats

Have a fun-filled evening of caroling, and bring your goats along! Their bleats can chime in, creating a unique caroling experience. Just ensure they’re comfortable and secure, especially if you’re taking them away from their usual environment.

6. Attend a “Goat Yoga” Session

Many places now offer “Goat Yoga” during the holiday season. Engage in a fun, relaxing session of yoga surrounded by goats in a festively decorated barn. Not only is it beneficial for your health, but it’s also a unique way to bond with your pets.

7. A Goat-Themed Christmas Tree

Dedicate a tree or a section of your main Christmas tree to goat-themed decorations. Think ornaments shaped like goats, bells (like those around a goat’s neck), and other rustic, farm-related adornments.

8. Share the Goat Love

If you breed goats or have baby goats around, consider hosting an open day for friends and neighbors. Let them experience the joy of feeding and playing with these lovely animals. Share stories, hot cocoa, and the spirit of the season.


The holiday season is all about love, joy, and togetherness. By integrating your pet goats into your celebrations, you’re not only ensuring they’re part of the family festivities, but you’re also creating unique memories that’ll last a lifetime. So, here’s to a bleat-tastic, Maaa…maaa…maaaary Christmas! 🐐🎄
