Have you ever heard of a waving goat?

You might recall reading headlines about a friendly goat years back. That was probably Darren, the waving goat!

He first gained “goat fame” back in 2009. British broadcaster ITV1 wanted Darren to come onto their talent show twice that year, but his caretakers decided to keep his fame on the farm.

Darren lived on White Post Farm in the U.K., where he enjoyed greeting and saying goodbye to visitors and staff in a manner a little different from most goats. He would wave at them!

In the cute video below, all of the children line up by Darren’s pen and are told to say “hi” to him, so they start waving.

Being a total gentleman, Darren waves back to the children and they’re so excited, they start to wave even harder to him. Have you even seen anything so cute?

Sadly, Darren passed away in 2011 at the age of 11. But in his lifetime he waved to many people and surely put many smiles on the faces of those who visited him.

If you love happy goats like Darren, you’ll also enjoy this video of a goat trying to talk and a man laughing every time she opens her mouth.

Please SHARE Darren with all of your animal-loving friends and family members on Facebook today!
