Maryland Farm Offers Goat Therapy, “Goat Grams” – NBC4 Washington

On a bad day or during difficult times, many of us turn to pets or videos of cute animals to lift our spirits.

But how about a goat?

Goats are very social and some say they’re just the thing for therapy.

That’s why a family living on a farm in Silver Spring, Maryland, has their phones ringing non-stop. People want to visit their four Nubians and two pygmy goats at a natural sanctuary on Ednor Road.

Joshua Krawiec, 11, spends a lot of time on the farm. He says chickens, ducks, and goats help him with stress — no TV or video games needed.

“Goats are way better than TV,” Krawiec said. “You make me happier. And they make me tired!”

His mother agrees it’s a healthier option.

“I know when Josh is having a bad day, I can say, ‘Let’s hang out with the goats,'” she said.

Morgan Hayes and Kelley Davis say they are part of their family. They share the love through goat kikes and goat therapy.

Hayes will also share her goats at your doorstep — something she calls “goat grams.” It’s a session anyone can book to hang out with the goats for an hour.

In the future, they hope to add goat yoga. Here you will find more information.
