JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – You have goat to be kidding me! Animal lovers in Jacksonville can now workout and pet goats at the same time! 

'Little Peeps Farmer for a Day' offers Goat Yoga classes. The little Nigerian Dwarf goats will join you as you have a relaxing yoga workout outside. 

"Come to the farm, meet the animals, do some yoga, and enjoy interacting with all the feathered and furry farm friends," the farm said in a Facebook post. "Goats are naturally curious animals, and ours LoVe to be with people. Expect them to come right up to you, rub on you (we call those goat hugs) and even climb right up on you!" 

You can also bring snacks for the goats if you'd like to feed them. The farm recommends vegetable scraps from your kitchen (as long as it has not been cooked and is not moldy), onion peels, carrot tops, apple cores, watermelon rinds, citrus peels. (No processed foods)
