At Woodside Goat Farm, the tiniest goat named Littlefoot was born. The farmers said it was the most miniature baby goat they had ever seen. Littlefoot was born first then his siblings came after.
When they saw him, they didn’t know if he would make it. Littlefoot’s mom licked him, and the other babies were normal-sized. The farmers were blown away by Littlefoot’s size.
Littlefoot weighed about a pound or less. He seemed good because he could hold his head up, and his eyes were open. They brought him inside to dry him up and keep him warm.
To keep Littlefoot dry, they used a blowdryer which he seemed to enjoy. Then they helped him latch onto his mother’s udder, which he happily drank milk from.
A big concern was that Littlefoot wouldn’t be able to process food correctly, but on the second day, he showed no issues. He was fragile, and things had to be perfect for him.
By the third day, he was still doing well, and he could stand up and walk around on his own. Littlefoot was also fed milk every few hours from a syringe.
The farmers were astonished by Littlefoot’s fighting spirit, and they honestly didn’t know a goat that small could be alive. Littlefoot is progressing well, and they will keep a close eye on him.
