Is yoga your thing? If so, check out the upcoming event at Longmeadow Rescue Ranch.

Nestled among 165-acres of woodland near Union, Missouri, the Humane Society of Missouri’s Longmeadow Rescue Ranch is haven for hundreds of abused and neglected horses, cows, goats, pigs, ducks and other farm animals. The Ranch is one of the most comprehensive horse and farm animal rescue, rehabilitation and adoption centers in the country. In addition to animal care, Ranch staff provide hands-on humane education experiences for both children and adults.

Coming up next weekend on Sat., Feb. 29, Longmeadow Ranch will be hosting a morning of “Baby Goat Yoga”.

Yoga lovers of all skill levels are invited to join the Humane Society of Missouri at its Longmeadow Rescue Ranch for a morning yoga class with adorable, energetic baby goats – led by instructor Michelle Menos with Agape Yoga Studio. Attendees can expect the “kids” to say hello throughout the class and even jump on and off their backs throughout the session.

Participants must bring their own yoga mats and should dress for the elements – event space is covered but not climate controlled, and flooring is a mix of dirt and sand.

After yoga, interested adopters are encouraged to stick around and learn more about goat ownership.

Between December 18, 2019 and January 1, 2020 there were SEVENTEEN baby goats born at the ranch. These adorable kids are having a great time on the ranch, playing and growing alongside their siblings and are now ready to find their forever homes. Goats make great companions; they enjoy playing, roaming outside and interacting with the owners.

Longmeadow Rescue Ranch hosts Open House / Adoption Days every Friday from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you are interested in meeting our adoptable animals or our Barn Buddies who are available for sponsorship, please visit the ranch during one of these days or call 636-583-8759 to schedule a visit on another day.
