World’s most patient horse lets goats use him as a playground

They're just kiddin' around and indulging in a little horseplay.

Here are some baby goats climbing on a horse. (It’s been a long week.)

The title of the video is “Mr. G ‘kid’ sitting.” This is a pun, because baby goats are called “kids,” and Mr. G is babysitting them.

What are we to make of the statuesque Mr. G? Does he mind having these goats clamber all over him?

I wonder, when you watch this video, do you see yourself in the goats, full of life and playfulness and also just trying to GTFOH? Or do you see yourself in Mr. G, patient, demure, unperturbed? Let us know in the comments!
