Caromont Farm in Esmont, Virginia is full up on volunteers for bottle feeding and cuddling their baby goats after receiving an "overwhelming response" to their January 7 Facebook request. The farm needs the mother goats' milk to make goat cheese, so the kids have to be bottle fed (and human snuggled) four times a day. They're kept in little baby goat pens with heaters and they even get little baby goat sweaters to keep them warm.

Oh hi, I'm wearing a little sweater.

The farm thanked everyone for responding via Facebook: "We have had such an overwhelming response to our call for goat snugglers … you guys are awesome! Unfortunately we could not fit all of you on to our volunteer schedule." However, everyone who wanted some goat time but didn't make the cut can rest easy, because the farm is also hosting Goatapalooza on April 3, promising goat cheese for sale and "baby goats running amuck [sic]."
