Cashmere goats are unique little creatures! First of all, yes, it’s the same ‘cashmere’ found in a cozy sweater or scarf. All cashmere actually comes from goats, and it wasn’t until the 1970s that Cashmere goats were raised in America. Aside from their coat, though, they are truly an incredible breed. They are highly intelligent, and about as easy-going as a goat can be. Cashmere goats get along well with other animals, young children, and of course each other. They are typically playful and energetic, not to mention adorable!
The original intention of Giggle With The Goats was to offer a unique, entertaining, and uplifting video for children to enjoy. After all, the goats featured are ‘kids’, themselves, with all the bounding energy of any young child. While kids do enjoy watching our goats do what they do best, an unexpected outcome is the impact these playful little goats have made on others. Specifically, those dealing with Alzheimer’s disease.
The video has been introduced to Alzheimer’s patients all over the country who have been known to exhibit the same joy and entertainment originally intended for children. There may not be any sort of scientific or medical logic behind the videos of our little goats, but the old saying rings true; laughter truly is the best medicine. We look forward to seeing how these videos may impact others in the future who might be struggling with illness, or simply those who need a few uplifting moments in their day.
