Baby Goats Jump For Joy In Slow Motion Video Perfectly Set To Classical Music.

A two-photo collage. The first shows goats gathered around stacks of hay. One of them is jumping onto the top of the stack. The second photo shows a goat fully in the air as it leaps forward rather than walking. Two goats in the back watch.

At Sunflower Farm Creamery in Cumberland, Maine, there’s always a reason to jump for joy. This farm is home to all sorts of animals, including lots of baby goats. They love sharing videos of their kiddos on their YouTube channel, especially when spring time rolls around and around 60 new goats join the family – because around here, more goats means more jumping!

You can find goats as young as a week old hopping about. And yes, it’s absolutely adorable! Recognizing that more people need to witness the sheer adorableness of baby goats jumping with all their might, Sunflower Farm Creamery shared a video of their goats doing just that. Best of all, it’s set to “Waltz of the Flowers” by Tchaikovsky and is edited be in slow motion, allowing us to see every silly move they make!

“So many people ask us why they hop, and I’m not sure we will ever know entirely,” the farm wrote. “It is likely some combination of skill development, as herbivores it’s important that they can elude predators with clever fake outs, and also probably to a large degree just for the joy of it. They leap because they can!”

The farm then goes on to use the joy these baby goats have from jumping into a lesson all of us humans could use.

“Humans could benefit so much by practicing being more nimble, fluid, and joyful,” they wrote. “It is so easy to get stuck in our ways, to feel heavy, and weighed down by the world. The goat kids show us that there is another way.”

Watch these kiddos joyfully jump in the video below.
