Huh, is it surprising that maudlin can't get a minute and 18 seconds of pure joy?

maudlin, you could try the user's youtube page. Click the "see all" link under uploads and it's the second to last one.

How are there even any 'dislikes' on that video? More dancing? More playing?! WHAT DO YOU PEOPLE WANT???

You just got the stick unstuck from my sister's port-hole. You are granted 3 internets.

Watching this video put me into a state of innocent pleasure. This comment made me feel like I will never be clean again.

Baby goat stampede!

Thanks, cjorgenson, I can see it now. Awwwww!

But does anyone else feel a little guilty watching it? The poor kid obviously has a gamboling problem.

Goat Stampede is one of my favorite things on the Internet. I've probably watched it 100 times. Sometimes, if I'm feeling a bit low, I go search for it and watch it again, just because it makes me smile.

I bet that mum goat has a pile of expensive toys somewhere, but, no, kid has to insist on playing with the stump...

(Seriously adorable. Goats are among the best things ever. Along with penguins, pugs, and otters.)

Eeeee! Watching this little fuzzy baby goat I can forget, for a moment, how horribly daemonically nightmarish they are!

No, no, wait. I remembered again.

Holy cow, madamjujujive, that is awesome. It's like a complete Rather Good Reunion (though I didn't see Pavarotti in there....)

A friend of mine just bought a house in the country in Florida so she can have a goat farm. Suddenly, it all makes a lot more sense.

They're not nearly as cute when they grow up, if that helps. Actually, they're downright evil and unsettling looking. And often grumpy and aggressive.

I would cuddle the shit out of that goat.

Imagine that the goat weights 85lbs and the stump is your car.

Easier?

Like me.

My biggest hesitation is that I’ve heard that your fencing really needs to be incredible. I’m lazy, my fencing is half assed. Luckily my horses are lazy as well.

After watching a horror flick, my wife was trying to find something a bit lighthearted before going to bed. I found this for her. She giggled incessantly. We're now ready for bed. Once again, talk of owning goats will take us to sleep.

Wow, this was great. I think we all need to watch stuff like this after every couple days of negative news.
posted by mitrieD at 11:47 PM on October 26, 2011


I think some goats must go through life thinking, "I bet I can get up there." (Where "there" is the highest spot near wherever the goat happens to be.) I used to visit a friend who had several goats, most of whom were content to placidly walk around in the field all day, except for one, who delighted in Going Where Goats Shouldn't. This included the roof of the barn, the roof of the truck, the roof of the house, the roof of the neighbor's house, etc. This goat was engaged in a lifelong game of King of the Mountain, and he was dead-set on winning.

Why does Kermit the Frog have goat eyes?

What is best in life? To be in someone else's barnyard in early spring, watching baby goats knock each other off the top of a pile of compost. Top of the world, Ma!

So we'll get along well then.

Seriously, thank you for this. I have long wanted goats, but we're currently city dwellers. I have great fantasies of a retired country life with goats. (Well with a full menagerie. But goats are currently on the husband approved list.)

I think it's funny though that adorable things like this get posted on the blue, and then whenever someone posts a question about "should I get goats?" on the green, and reality sets in. I think I'm going to hang out here on the blue for a bit, with a baby goat stampede.

Aww... what a happy little creature! It's like it's still figuring out what its body can do, and is excited to have recently discovered jumping.

>They're not nearly as cute when they grow up, if that helps. Actually, they're downright evil and unsettling looking. And often grumpy and aggressive.

Alpacas might be a good alternative. I've seen them on farms and at some shows, and they always look cute to me. They also look like a camel where the factory mixed up metric and imperial measurements.

The noise they make sounds exactly like someone loudly saying "Meh." If MeFi is ever looking for a new mascot, I think the Alpaca would be a good choice.

This is not as unusual as I once thought. My husband is totally enamored of goats and he, too, dreams of the day....

Alpacas might be a good alternative.

I know a woman who started an Alpaca farm. I visit her to buy poop (alpaca poop is gold!) Apparently you have to have a guard dog for alpacas. I find them a bit more charming and a little less evil than goats but they are also more expensive and harder to find and a lot taller.

I'm a suburbanite, but I too have dreamed of goats. House goats. Mainly because I like the idea of coming home, walking into the kitchen, nodding to the goat hanging out on top of the refrigerator, scratching the head of the one balanced on the top of the cat tree, and then making myself some dinner.

The main problem with this is the other pets, because it already sounds like a damn stampede when the dogs and cats chase each other around, I can't imagine how much louder it would be if I added hooves to the mix.

I always have wanted a camel. But it is too late in my life for that now. Well cared for camels can live to be 50.

I enjoy goats. Baby goats are adorable.

Goats are also pretty stinky, but you can get past that because they are so cute.

I might be biased.

The expression of pleasure on this goat's face is positively catlike.

(That is a major compliment, Lou Stuells. And now I want a goat, too. Damn.)

No way, my girls smell awesome. They smell like... uh... djembe drums. Only intact male goats are stinky. To impress the ladies, they anoint themselves generously - beards, forelegs, and all - with their own urine.

Or is it Axe Body Spray?

I had much the same thought. Also, for at least half that video, he is thinking (in goatese, of course): "Look ma! Look! Look! I'm up here! Ma! Look! MA! MA! MA! Look at me, I'm jumping! Up here! Ma! Look!"

Goats with more toys to play on. Action really starts at 1:00.

Goats on tramps:

I refuse to watch this. If you don't want to give money to tramps, that's your prerogative, but sending goats at them -- and filming it -- is reprehensible.
