Baby Goat Rejected By His Mom Becomes Best Friends With A Human

ADVERTISEMENT

When this adorable little pygmy goat named Benjamin was born at Pot House Hamlet in the U.K., he was rejected by his mother because she had had twins and couldn’t support both of them. Luckily, Tom Horsfield was there to help – the orphaned Benji took after this kind nursery owner like a father or best friend and follows him everywhere he goes!

The prancing baby pygmy goat follows Horsfield wherever he goes, so he’s made quite a few friends along the way. Horsfield says he feeds the little guy 5 to 6 times a day, and will do so until he’s old enough to be let out into the countryside to graze independently. Visitors have been flocking to the nursery in South Yorkshire to see Benji before he grows up, and he’s been loving the attention!

After his mom rejected him, Benji began following Tom Horsfield wherever he goes

The two became absolutely inseparable

Benji even follows Tom to his work at Pot House Hamlet in Barnsley in the U.K.

The goat prances and nibbles on flowers while Tom works

The little guy spends most of his time prancing, so he’s understandably tired

He gets fed 5-6 times a day – sometimes as early as 4:00 in the morning!

When he grows up, however, he’ll be released to graze in the countryside with all the other goats

In the mean while, however, he’s too busy prancing to think about all of that

Check out this report about their friendship!
