Here’s the word from Sunflower Farms: “This has become the kids daily routine. They love to run up and down the drive before bed! Then they sprint into their stall for grain. Well except for Angeline, who prefers to practice her balancing act.” I feel you, Angeline.
As Laughing Squid notes, the Cumberland, Maine dairy farm has a tradition of recording their goats’ dashing shenanigans. If you need a new YouTube channel to subscribe to, well, friend, you’re in luck. Take, for existence, their breakout video of a chihuahua puppy who thinks that she’s a baby goat:
