Man "Marries" Goat For Cover Of The Stranger

Posted by on Wed, Dec 5, 2012 at 2:30 PM

This week's Stranger cover features a sweet, handsome man marrying a really fine-looking goat. I'd like to say for the record, as the photographer—a goat is not an easy model to shoot. I'd also like to say that Garrett, the man, is a lovely human. He's also in a pretty-sounding dream-pop band called CADET. And the goat, well, it's name is Snowflake, and it's featured in a neat, new book written by Seattle's own "Godmother of Goat Lovers" Jennie P. Grant.

More photo outtakes and book info, after the jump!

That young man man just confirms my deepest suspicions that I am becoming a dirty old mannequin.

Snowflake is a female and a mom, according to the linked blog.

What the blog doesn't indicate, however, is how urban goat herders get away with drinking raw, unpasteurized milk products without getting a nasty intestinal infection.

The goats themselves are very cute.

Now THAT is fucking hilarious. Maybe next week you can run a photo of Mitt Romney's great-grandfather, Miles Park Romney, and his five wives on the cover.

Korbel? Really?

Next time, have Charles pick the bubbles.

I hope the goat isn't under the age of eighteen, because that would be wrong!

Is that a BILLY goat? Abomination!

That book totally goes on my Christmas list. I love goats.

I probably wouldn't want to live next to one (unless, of course the goat mowed...well...ate my lawn for me), but I still love them.

This being Seattle, the man-goat couple will get fewer jibes than the Stoddens.
