Goats are all the rage these days. You’ve probably seen your local gym and/or farm offering goat yoga. You’ve seen the videos of baby goats in pajamas. (If you haven’t, why not?). And no respectable cheese plate worth its weight in Instagram likes is complete without a little pat of goat cheese nestled between apricot jam and Marcona almonds.
Well, it’s time for goats to step aside because a new cutest barnyard animal is coming to take the cutest barnyard crown from right off their horned little heads, maybe even mid-downward dog.
Lambs are definitely cute, but once they grow up, most people don’t think much about the wooly animals that lumber around fields. In fact, you may go so far to say that sheep are kind of…well, creepy. They lack the charisma of goats but still have the weird slit eye thing that makes them look a little bit like zombies. And their low baa bellowing across a field can sound downright eerie.
