Little girl meets her family’s baby goats for the first time

Emerald Pellot

Baby’s first time meeting the family pets is never a dull moment!

A Slovak toddler named Ela Jagnesakova had the pleasure of finally meeting the family’s three baby goats. In the adorable clip, recorded last April, Ela greets the tiny creatures with a bowl of blueberries in the barn. First, Ela softly kisses one of the goats on the head. Then the baby goats sweetly nibble on berries from her hand. But when one of the goats rejects the berry, it doesn’t bother Ela — she just eats it instead. 

“She is very sweet around them and very excited to see them,” Ela’s mother Klaudia Jagnesakova told Newsflare. “She spontaneously kisses them and even offers them her breakfast.”

Goats can make great companions for humans and kids. Pygmy goats, in particular, seem to form strong bonds with children. The curious and friendly creatures are one of the oldest domesticated animals, making them comfortable around humans. As Ela demonstrated, they like attention, petting and being handfed. 

Parents will find children can develop a sense of responsibility when they care for their pet goats. Meanwhile, the creatures also make great learning tools by teaching kids to appreciate animals and the environment early on. It’s no wonder therapy goats are often used to comfort children with special needs.

  • Disney World attraction malfunctions in viral video, leads to hilarious memes

    Just a few days before Disney World enters its phased reopening on July 11, one particular attraction at the theme park seems to have gone rogue.On July 8, CinemaBlend reported that the park had conducted a test of its Carousel of Progress attraction at Tomorrowland.where its main animatronic character John recently appeared to spaz out on stage.An 18-second clip of that moment surfaced on Twitter, where it promptly led to some hysterical meme.“John clearly hasn’t been rehearsing during his vacation time,” the Magic Blitz Podcast joked on the social media platform.Several users took the opportunity to set the clip against some audio. One person, shared the clip set against rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine’s single “GOOBA”.All of this is to say that the pandemic, which temporarily shut down Disney’s attractions, clearly took a toll on poor John.But under Disney’s reopening guidelines (along with a bit of repair), the animatronic will hopefully be able to see new life again
