Default Goats at play!

This is the cutest video of goats playing on a large metal ribbon.

Just goats having fun balancing on a flexible steel ribbon. [VIDEO]

turttle, where did you find this crazy clip?

My goat always tried to climb to the topmost point she could find which was usually the top of the cab of my old Ford truck parked in the pasture. She loved to climb onto the window sills of the house too. I guess goats naturally like to climb which would account for their behavior in the video. Either that or they just wanna have fun!

Makes me want to go out and start owning goats again!

My husband forwarded it me, a friend forwarded it to him. It is cute enough that it is probably going viral.

It would make for a great example of how most of the meat eaten in the U.S does not come from places that allow animals to play like this.

A great banner for the video would be: "Who is raising the animal for your next meal?"
