MONTROSE, Colo., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A Colorado farmer is preparing for the Super Bowl by knitting Denver Broncos sweaters for the 150 baby goats expected this spring.
Rebecca Herberg, who runs the 400-acre goat farm with her husband in Montrose, said she has been busy in the run-up to the Super Bowl knitting Denver Broncos sweaters for the 150 baby goats expected to be born on the farm during the coming spring.
"When they're born typically they weigh 8, 9 pounds; and they're cold, it's April," Herberg told KCNC-TV.
She said the female goats get orange sweaters, and the males get blue ones.
"The first go-around uses them for a couple of weeks, we wash them, we put them on the next round," Herberg said. "As long as everyone gets a sweater."
Herberg said the sweaters have also proven useful for her 15 dogs.
"They look like a bunch of little Broncos fans running around down there," she said.
The farmer said the Denver Broncos turned her into a football fan.
"They're really a team that you can be proud of, and I love them," she said. "It's not so much I'm a football fan as that I'm a Broncos fan, and how can you not be?"
The Broncos are scheduled to face the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday in San Francisco.
