Animals Video

These adorable baby goats have been caught kidding around with an exercise ball.

Owners David, 38 and Tarrah, 31, from Vermilion, Ohio, decided to film their ‘kids’ with an exercise ball on July 18.

The four goats known as Fainting Goats can be seen falling off the ball as they attempt to jump up onto it.

Ricky is the eight month old black goat,  the light brown goat is Lucy and the two baby goats are twins who have not yet been named.

The couple found their antics hilarious and decided to capture it all on camera.

David said: “We decided to set the ball out and just see what the babies would do with it.

“This was filmed just two weeks ago in our back yard around dusk.

“The twins really like playing with the exercise ball but Ricky and Lucy are still a bit cautious about it.

“You can also see from the video how much they like running around the yard.

“The twins really like to stick together, so you’ll often see them running very close.

“Tarah called me out of the house and told me to bring my camera because she saw the twins starting to play with the ball.”

David and Tarah live on a farm and the twin goats have already settled in well.

He added: “The twins are a little more adventurous than their half-siblings, but they still mostly follow us around.

“They seem to play with the dogs even more than Ricky and Lucy, but maybe that’s just because of their age.”
