Benjamin the 5-week-old pygmy goat was born a twin, and his mother was unable to nurse both babies, so Benjamin was rejected.

If you are a human being with a heart and a soul and the ability to emote and feel, you will most certainly enjoy clicking on the video above and watching the mesmerizing live feed of these baby fainting goats from the Barnyard Buddies farm in Colorado.
