Best Goat Surprise: Sanchez Elementary School

The parallels between children and goats are uncanny. They are both adorable. They both love to stand on top of things. And they both have a sort of omnipresent, erm, earthy aroma. Given that goats and children are so obviously soul-linked, we were filled with overwhelming happiness when we stumbled upon the goat pen at Sanchez Elementary School. We were just tickled to learn that the children of SES get to experience the wonder of bonding and growing attached to these strange, special creatures so like themselves. Kids grow and mature alongside the goats throughout the year until the springtime comes and they are auctioned off to new homes (the goats, not the kids). Only $150 a pop for a new goat bestie! Wait… cabrito is Spanish for whhhut?!
