Some people think there’s nothing better than curling up in a warm set of PJs on a rainy day – and it turns out some goats feel just the same way.
A video posted by Sunflower Farm Creamery in Maine shows three-week-old Nigerian dwarf goats siblings Winifred and Monty leaping, prancing and chasing each other around a barn on a rainy day, dressed in fleece pajamas.
“Goats have zero interest in letting one rain drop touch their heads, so these little ones enjoyed their time out, but decided to stay inside the barn!” reads the video description.
The video has amassed over 950,000 views in just a few days and has paid off in other ways for the small dairy goat farm that produces their own cheeses and caramels.
“It’s been in really hot demand!” owner Hope Hall told Global News. “We can’t keep the cheese stocked this year. It’s a great problem to have as a small farm. That’s been a real treat from the video.”
Hall said she filmed the video on a “cold, rainy and raw” day and remembered that she had a couple of back-up goat PJs for just such an occasion.
Hall says the reason she tends to spoil her herd of 24 goats is the same reason the farm has adopted a no-cull policy.
“They each have such distinct personalities that it’s incomprehensible that we’d do anything but let them live their whole lives. They serve us as dairy goats and we owe them the debt of gratitude to treat them as best as we can.”
In a few weeks, Winifred and Monty will be on their way to their new homes as pets. In the future, Winifred may become a dairy goat for her new family.
