10 Adorable Goat Videos That’ll Brighten Your Day

  • 2 of 2

5. Myotonic aka stiff-legged goats aka fainting goats

You’ve probably heard of fainting goats, who sport one of the most bizarre genetic traits ever: when startled, their muscles seize, causing them to fall over in a distinctive stiff-legged pose. I’m not sure what sort of evolutionary advantage that’s supposed to confer, but it’s hilarious to watch. Don’t worry, it doesn’t actually hurt the goats. This can happen from something as simple as being excited about eating.

6. Attack rabbit!

You never know when a goat minding its own business will become a victim. Be on guard against attack rabbits at all times, my four-legged friends. CONSTANT VIGILANCE! Or you’ll end up perched on top of a feeding tray, bested by an animal a fraction of your size.

7. Kids see snow for the first time

These baby Pygmy Goats at the Saint Louis Zoo were nervous about all that white stuff on the ground, but willing to give it a go. The result is absolutely adorable.

8. Goats climbing trees

You know goats are sure-footed, even if they’re not mountain goats, who are particularly famous for it, but this video is rather outstanding. Something tells me no one will need to call the fire department to get these kids out…

9. Piper the Pittie and her “puppies”

Piper the pitbull loves playing with kids, belying claims about “bully breeds.” This goat trio are clearly happy as clams to be romping around with their canine friend.

10. Tashi meets a goat

Tashi, a cat born with a neurological condition that causes rear limb weakness, apparently finds a kid quite the motivator when it comes to physical therapy sessions.

Thanks for sharing. I just love goats. The first goats looked like they had a very barren yard with not much to stimulate them, so they were very clever to make use of the wheelbarrows.

How funny no respondent so far mentioned goat cheese(s). Here in Crete, cradle of western civilisation as you (white folk) and I know it, every grocer who also sells dairy, certainly offers myzithra, a fresh soft cream cheese made (here) only from goat milk.
