The pastoral pastime, which winningly combines mild exercise with adorable baby animals, has been reported mostly in small farm towns across America, from Virginia and New Hampshire to Oregon and Colorado.

It arose out of Hire Our Party Goats, which — with former child actor Scout (née Jessica) Raskin at the helm — hires out its goats for film shoots, birthday parties and other events. Her two Nigerian Dwarfs have been trained well to respond to treats — so it was a natural evolution to partner with the Hello Critter Care pet service and place those treats strategically on the not-so-unsuspecting backs of yogis and yoginis.
