Meet Gershwin, Butterscotch, Marigold, and Bruno – 1-day-old baby goats learning to jump for the first time in their lives. While the video captures their modest attempts, their owners from Sunflower Farm Creamery in Maine write: “Not yet a day old and already practicing hopping! By tomorrow they will be experts.”
As if it weren’t cute enough, the baby goats are dressed in adorable sweaters. “We dressed them in sweaters last night because it was pretty chilly for newborns, but also Rhubarb [the goat mother] is not sure the white and tan one is hers so we tried to disguise him in a darker color! She seems better about it and let him nurse a ton which is great.”
Luckily for these newborns, Sunflower Farm is different from other establishments as they boast about having a “no cull” policy that allows its animals to live out their days in peace rather than being killed the moment they stop bringing the money in.
The farm says it’s treating their “little goats like queens” and soon they will even start offering yoga classes that allow one to connect to the simple pleasures in life – such as petting a goat and enjoying the outdoors.
