We’re not sure if this video of a goat riding on that back of a horse is real, staged, or a figment of our imagination, but as soon as you see it, you’ll agree that it really doesn’t matter.
On its Facebook page, the Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism Board claims that this entire vignette was just an adorable accident that occurred while they were filming a TV ad. This prompts us to say that if these are the kind of random things that happen in Newfoundland, we are packing our bags and heading there right this minute.
"While filming one of our TV commercials, the crew spotted these two unlikely friends near Cape St. Mary's Ecological Reserve,” says the description. Commonly known as ‘The Cape,’ the ecological reserve is a major seabird colony on the southwestern part of the Avalon Peninsula.
We do suspect some marketing genius is behind this next line: “Which begs the question, what else would you expect in a place with its very own time zone?" Amazingly, the Tourism Board states that there are four goats who live on this farm, and that they all apparently enjoy riding the horse, as goats apparently do in Newfoundland.
