There was a sweet, smaller, and younger goat that had beautiful blue eyes. She was a regular visitor of mine. Her demeanor was gentle and kind. I thought about bringing her home with me. Then quickly realigned my thinking as I realized I know nothing about caring for a goat. I decided attending a goat yoga class was a better option to spend time with goats.
There are positive benefits to doing goat yoga (animal therapy). Once you get past the cuteness overload, animal therapy helps with lowering blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and even physical pain, but for children with autism, it helps foster important connections that may increase self-confidence.
Goats, particularly baby goats, are great for animal therapy because they don’t need to develop a relationship with you before coming right up and interacting with you. Their friendliness and outgoing demeanor make it easy to connect with them instantly.
