Help name the Zermatt goats and win gelato

Help name the Zermatt goats and win gelato

These six lucky goats are calling Zermatt Resort home for the summer. Five of the six goats have already arrived to devour the noxious weeds along the back hillside of the resort. Who needs pesticide when you have goats? Now that the goats have arrived, help us give them names. You can submit your favorite names by commenting on this blog post or by sending us a message on facebook or twitter. On Monday May 18th, we will divide up the best names for each goat and post a voting pole. If your name is selected for one of the goats, you’ll win a tummy full of delicious gelato ice cream from the Bakerei & Eis Eurpoean bakery at Zermatt.
