Hang Out To Dry With Cold War Kids At The Rustic, Sing The Last Love Song With ZZ Ward At Trees And Lose Your Cool With Amber Mark At Cambridge Room.

Is there anything goats can’t do? They have become yoga professionals, internet stars, and now golf caddies. In the highlands of East Oregon, the Silvies Valley Ranch has found a solution to their ever challenging goat unemployment issue. They are the first ranch to offer a full resort for visitors with goats as golf caddies.

Thanks to the minds at Seamus Golf, the goats have their own golf bag that is set up to hold clubs, drinks, and most importantly, peanuts. The peanuts are the goats’ incentive for their hard work. Using the peanuts as a reward they have been able to train four goats to walk the greens and even to give you advice on your swing. So far there are four goats toting golf bags, but by next season, they plan to double that number.

Some animal rights activists have suggested that this is unjust treatment of the goat, the ranch responded by saying they are providing the goats with a paying job. The ranch’s head caddie, Bruce LeGoat, seems to be pretty happy eating peanuts, so maybe it’s not that ba-h-h-d.

Sure those goats are amazing and you’d be hard pressed to find something that cool in the next few hours, but maybe the events listed below might live up to the goat-set standard. — Jacob Besser
