Trying new things can be scary.
It helps (and is also mandatory) to be strapped to a professional the first time you sky dive. It’s nice to know the guy you are meeting for a blind date is pre-approved by your best friend (not mandatory, but recommended). For a pygmy goat learning to hop, having a human buddy just hoofsteps away can make a world of difference.
Already an accomplished hopper, the sock-footed friend in the video shows the goat how it’s done. After tentatively watching her scuttle across the linoleum floor, the animal decides to give it a try.
A few false starts later, the kid proves to be a natural born-hopper, improving with every bounce.
