The Goats of Instagram: 8 Accounts to Follow
Dogs and cats aren’t the only animals taking over Instagram. Goats are coming up in a big way. It could be due to the fact that more and more people are keeping them as pets, or simply because they are just as cute as their barking and meowing counterparts.
Here are some of our favorite goats popping up in our Instagram feeds.
Mavis and Deirde
Mavis and Deirdre are a couple of city goats who live in a backyard, but can often be found in their owner’s house. We love seeing what they’re up to across the pond in Wales, and you will too!
Fun Facts From @in_goats_we_love
@in_goats_we_love has a great feed that pairs adorable Instas of goats from around the country with fun facts. For instance, the fun fact for the photo below says "Each goat has a unique call and scent, that is how its mother recognizes it from birth!" Who knew?
Goats of Anarchy
We have a special place in our hearts for any organization that helps animals in need, and Goats of Anarchy is no different. Follow their Instagram account to see adorable special needs baby goats like these two cuties, and donate to help care for them.
Is anything cuter than a kid? And by that, we mean a baby goat. We think not, as seen by this precious baby boy. You can see more goat kids by following @goats_are_family.
Nick the Mini Cow and Solo the Goat
We love these sustainable farmers from Honey Comb Valley Farm in Australia. Their family adventures are fun to see, and so are their goats (and cows).
Daisy Is a Total Ham
The farm-loving woman behind @slightleynuts says she loves all things "feathered, furry and funny." We especially love all of the photos of her goat herd. They like to ham it up for the camera, as seen here by Daisy.
Goat Playing Hide-and-Seek
Anyone up for a game of hide-and-seek? This goat is! @goatloversanonymous is an Instagram account for goat lovers from goat lovers that features goats from all over the country — and we could not love it more!
@goatsofinstagram1 is another goat fanatic Instagram account that we adore. We are especially fond of this "smug" goat who’s holding his head high.
