This baby goat Instagram story starts, naturally, with a human. Meet Jessi Pottebaum. She and her husband, Josh, own a farm in western Kentucky, near the town of Princeton.

(That is not Josh on the right. That is a goat.)

Back in 2009, they bought two miniature goats to help keep the grass on their farm manageable. “They didn’t do a very good job of mowing down the grass,” she told BuzzFeed Animals, “but I fell in love anyway."

And from two goats grew an entire farm: 32 adult goats in all.

But about then about a month ago, something wonderful happened: 10 of their goat moms had gotten pregnant.
