Day of the Icelandic Goat

As you’d be well aware, today is the Day of the Icelandic Goat.  Are you prepared for it?

Have to say though that I’m concerned the whole human population of goat farmers is to be found only on one or two farms:

There are currently 800 Icelandic goats owned by 50 individuals in the country, most of which are on one or two farms, reports.

A worthy cause I think we’d all agree:

In 2011, Jóhanna Þorvaldsdóttir, the country’s most active goat farmers, established an association with the goal of making goat breeding a sustainable option and educating Icelanders about the qualities of the goat.

So what do you plan to do to celebrate goats this evening?   Any goats you plan to be with?

    How are they best enjoyed? (Don’t ask a German) Fried? Baked? With chips?
