By David Truax

In 2024, Lambgoat will celebrate its 25th year online. As we step into the new year, let's reflect on the past 365 days and examine the content that garnered the most attention from our users in 2023.

In commemoration of our 25th anniversary, you have the opportunity to acquire a high-quality heavyweight hoodie. This marks the initiation of our limited 2024 merchandise collection, paying homage to the color schemes of our early days. The hoodies come in Green and Blue variations, featuring our white embroidered script logo. Please note that this is a first-come-first-serve offering, and the product will be unavailable after January 31st. Once pre-orders are closed, these will no longer be offered ever again.

Hoodie specs are: Independent Trading Company Men's Premium 450GM Heavyweight Cross-Grain Hoodie. 70% Cotton 30% Polyester. Double fleece lined hood.

Although our List section was introduced later in the year, there isn't sufficient content for a list at this time. However, you can anticipate one next year, along with any new or revived sections.
