One-way ticket to Virginia, please.
A farm in Esmont is searching high and low for people to — wait for it — snuggle with its baby goats. Okay, so the actual wording is "kidding season volunteers" (a "kid" being a baby goat).
Caromont Farm's online listing, which includes a simple sign-up sheet, reads: "Beginning in early February we will need willing, caring volunteers to assist in bottle feeding infant goats, keeping the herd warm and dry, and maintaining cleanliness of the equipment and pens." No prior experience required.
Let me at that sign-up sheet.
As NBC-29 reports, farmers at Caromont bottle-feed the "kids" four times a day. No wonder they could use a little help. Oh, and the babies are clothed in sweaters to keep them warm.
Unfortunately, as of the time of this writing, all slots are filled. Of course.
Well, there's always next year.
