Meet Sawyer and Scout, the Adorable New York Goats Who Love to Hike

“I have pictures and videos of us bottle-feeding them and it’s probably the greatest experience of my life,” Sicari said. “I think that’s why they’re so attached to me and to the kids at the school and why they’re really friendly with people.”
But that wasn’t where the program stopped. Summit School’s animal care program is now home to two goats, two dogs, five chickens and two bunnies.
“I did my first one like four years ago and I was hooked on just doing them all and checking them off this list,” Sicari said, noting that Big Slide was her first big peak. “They say it’s like a beginner one, but I remember it being my first one and it took like eight hours. At the end, I thought I was gonna die.”
After four years and lots of hiking, Sicari finished all 46 peaks and became an Adirondack 46er. Then, earlier this year in January, she started bringing the goats along on her shorter outings, like her daily hikes to Hook Mountain with her students.
