Caroling

Goat-Grams

Dashing through the snow in a one-goat open sleigh...

How it Works

Select an available time slot on our website for the day available and e-mail us any additional driving or gate/access instructions to pair with your order.

 

We will arrive in festive décor with our goat ambassador to deliver to the recipient our assortment of condensed versions of ‘goat-theme Christmas Carols’ including such hits as “Oh Holy Goat” “Silent Goat” and “We Wish You a Merry Goatmas” (Songs will vary).

 

After your recipient has been briefly serenaded, they have a short meet & greet with the goat of up to 10 minutes. Photos are welcome & encouraged!

 

THANK YOU for your support of our small business and farm this winter. Your business is what helps feed and care for our animals over the winter and is much appreciated!

Why we Goat-Gram

We wish to spread some holiday cheer! The holidays can be stressful, and many of us are dealing with various pressures, stress, anxiety or depression, illness or injury. We believe in the positive power of laughter and a little bit of silliness. Goats have a calm and loving energy about them that’s hard to ignore.

The Basics

-Select an available date and 'time slot' for your area - each time slot is a four-hour window in which to expect arrival of the Goat-Gram. We apologize, but logistically we cannot accommodate an 'exact time' with all the factors involved. (If UPS can't figure out how, neither can our small farm- sorry!)

-Bookings may be cancelled with full refund up to four days at noon PST with full refund, minus $10 service fee. Refunds are processed within 30-days.

-Time slot reservation is required at time of booking, rescheduling is done on an as-available basis and is an additional $10 service fee for each rescheduling.

-Goat theme holiday card with your custom message is a non-refundable $5 add-on

-Up to 10 minutes ‘meet & greet’ with Goat Ambassador

-Goat Ambassador will be a Nigerian Dwarf Goat (a miniature breed of goat), and may be of any age baby to adult at our discretion. (Our goal is to bring a baby, but cold/wet weather and the animal’s health & well-being are our top priority when selecting a Goat Ambassador for the day’s adventure).

-Please make sure to ask any questions or clarification PRIOR to booking.

-By signing up for any Mullenax Ranch/California Goat Yoga event or program you agree to our terms of service.

FULL TERMS OF SERVICE LISTED BELOW

School Visits:  With written permission & instructions for entering (e-mail is OK), we are able to deliver to teachers and staff, or a ‘whole classroom’ but not individual students. If you’d like to send a goat gram to your child, please schedule for when they’re home. Please include a contact person in the school office and phone number in case of questions day-of.
