CBS4’s Jamie Leary has packed her bags and is driving to California for Super Bowl 50. She left early Monday morning heading west trying to get ahead of the storm and will be filing reports about the Denver Broncos along the way.

Her first stop was at a goat farm just outside of Montrose.

MONTROSE, Colo. (CBS4) – Nestled on over 400 acres of private property sits a small cabin with a lot of love — love for wildlife, livestock, and of course, love for the Broncos.

The Herberg family is getting ready to share their Broncos love with some new additions to their family. Rebecca Herberg is having kids this spring — 150 of them. Goats of course. The only kind of kids the Herbergs have time for these days.

“When they’re born typically they weigh eight, nine pounds; and they’re cold, it’s April,” Herberg said.

That’s why Herberg knits little orange and blue sweaters for the cold kids.

“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.”

With 14, and what Herberg’s husband calls a half dog, her Broncos goat coats and ranch duties take up every second of the day. The girl goats get orange and the boys get blue.

“They look like a bunch of little Broncos fans running around down there.”

While she hasn’t always been a football fan, the Broncos have won her over.

“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?”

While the secluded lifestyle suits the Herbergs just fine, they finally broke down and bought a big screen TV to watch the Super Bowl with their goats and 14 1/2 dogs. Herberg said while she thinks Cam Newton seems like a talented young man, this just isn’t his year to win the big game.
