Say hello to the adorable newborn goat named Hector! He might only be a couple of days old, born on July 11th, but that has not stopped this little one from making friends – or at least trying to make friends.
In the YouTube clip, the three barn kittens he meets intrigue the curious Nigerian dwarf goat. On his adventure through the barn, Hector follows the tabby cats. Up and down he goes, clumsily climbing barrels of wood shavings, bemusing the onlooking audience of kittens. Everything seems to be going well until he reaches the top and the kittens make a run for it.
"Hector the Nigerian Dwarf baby goat is just 2 days old. His Mama Amelia Earhart is a little protective of her only kid (most goats have 3-4 babies at once!),” said a rep from Sunflower Farm in Cumberland according to WBLM. "While he waits for cousins to be born in the stall next door, he has befriended the three barn kittens. Mom is not so sure about this plan! The kittens did inspire him to climb the wood shavings bale for the first time!"
Hector still chases after them, like a kid in the playground, until his mom steps in and interrupts the adorable fun. Amelia Earhart, his mother, does not seem all too thrilled by Hector's new friends. However, like any other protective mother, she seemed to be worried about her baby boy. They end with a frolic through the grassy green meadows of Sunflower Farm Creamery.
Located in Maine, the dairy farm is unlike any we have seen before. Sunflower specializes in Nigerian Dwarf goat milk, which has become very popular because of the size of the goats. Smaller goats equal less room needed to farm and house them. Nonetheless, these clever goats are far from normal farm animals.
“We giggle when folks visiting ask us if all the goats have names,” the farm states on their website.
“Not only do they all have names, they all have distinct calls we know even from the kitchen, they each have preferences for their favorite treats, and places they most love to be scratched. In the milk room, each mama has their own approach to our time together: Matilda likes to be milked without her head closed into the headgate. GoGo insists that she be milked one side at a time. After Rosemary is milked, she waits on the milk stand for a few minutes of love before she is ready to hop down and go about her day.”
The milk is used for their vast array of cheeses and treats. Everything on the farm is made in small batches and available depending on the seasons.
Cheese making, goat yoga, and educational tours are also offered to the public. Looks like we might have to get in on that yoga, talk about cute!
If you are looking to see more of Hector and his family, the dairy farm has a live stream of the barn and pasture – like Big Brother only with goats. Way more adorable.
