First, it was a handstanding goat that caught the attention of the Internet.

Yet, goats have appealed to our bleating hearts by showing us that their true strength lies not in physical prowess, but their minds. Case in point, this goat using a humble donkey to get at those crabapple trees he desires so badly. 

It’s only a matter of time before we become the donkey in this video, as goats continue their march for world Web dominance.
