Duckling grooms lamb buddy’s coat and it’s almost too adorable

Winter has a perfect life. For one thing, he’s a lamb, which ranks highly on the top 10 list of most adorable animals on the planet (source cited: an extremely scientific survey I conducted in the back of my Lisa Frank notebook in third grade). He’s also best friends with a fluffy yellow duckling, if this video of the two BFFs just hangin’ out is any indication. 

While it might look like the duck is pecking Winter, his owner explains the clip thusly: “What could be mistaken as pecking is actually a heartwarming sign of trust and friendship. The duck pecks out little clumps of debris that gets stuck in Winter’s woollen coat. They seem so comfortable with each other that Winter can just lay down on the grass for a nap and let his feathered friend do what he does best.”

Who doesn’t wish they had a duckling BFF who would peck out clumps of debris on their woollen coat? Winter, you lucky bastard.
