This kid is determined to get as much milk as possible, and it’s darn cute.

Have you ever wanted something so badly that you just couldn’t go without it, but you didn’t really know how to go about getting it? I imagine that’s how this hungry baby goat felt when it saw a huge bucket of milk. It didn’t quite know what to do, so it just dunked its whole head into the bucket.

It must have been starving, because it really goes for it. At first it just dunks its nose in up to its eyes, which is already kind of alarming. Doesn’t it hurt to have milk in your eyes? But then it dunks its whole head in, eyes and all, almost up the ears!

As we watch this Bobby Goat (Get it? Because he’s bobbing?) voraciously drink from the bucket of milk, we can’t help but start to worry a little bit. Is it just a little over-enthusiastic? Is it a little dumb? Or does it truly have a death wish? Also, how long can it go without coming up for air?!

To our relief, after a good 20 seconds of having its head almost completely submerged in the milk while it’s gulping it down (how is it swallowing without air?!), it finally emerges, seemingly unphased. Unsurprisingly it’s dripping with milk, and it gives itself a little shake before trotting off cheerfully.

The user, @tokachiyagi, which seems to be the official Twitter for the farm where the goat lives, doesn’t explain why it’s going diving, but some netizens guessed that there’s something submerged in the milk that it wants. Another user said, “It’s looking for the mother’s udder that’s supposed to be beyond the milk.” We don’t know if that’s true, but we love watching it bob for milk all the same.

The goat is actually one of the many that enjoy a low-stress, free-range lifestyle at Tokachi Millennium Forest in Hokkaido. Their high quality of life allows them to produce high quality milk that is made into delicious cheese. The goats at Tokachi Millennium Forest are descended from goats that originally came from Switzerland, and the farm is one the few places left in Japan that are designated for raising goats, so the cheese and milk produced there are said to be quite special.

The farm is open to visitors, who can meet and interact with the goats and even see our little Bobby feeding at around 10 a.m. every day. It’s also part of a larger park, where horseback riding and Segway tours are offered, and visitors can learn how to make cheese. The park includes five gardens, a cafe, and a shop where you can buy the cheese, so there’s plenty to do there if for some reason you get tired of the goats (but really, how could you?).

Ideally you’d want to buy the cheese fresh from the farm after you cuddle with this silly kid, but if you want to try Tokachi Millennium’s goat cheese without traveling, you can also order it from their online shop. For other goat needs (like cuddling and petting), you can always rent a goat online!
