A baby goat at Inlander HQ

Posted By on Thu, Apr 18, 2013 at 10:31 AM

It’s an excellent day here so far at Inlander HQ because we were visited by a baby goat. The little guy, called Tiny, is only a couple of weeks old. Technically he was sent to our publisher, but we still got to hold him.

The annual “Send a Friend a Goat” event raises money for the Wishing Star Foundation, a regional nonprofit that grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. You pay $50 to send a goat to an unsuspecting person. (You can also purchase goat insurance to make sure you don’t receive one, though I have no idea why you would do that.)

If you didn’t receive a goat this year, you can also see them or bring children to pet them this Saturday. The carnival/petting zoo goes from noon to 3 pm at A to Z Rentals, located at 10903 E. Sprague.
