Internet Sensation Gets International Visitors

Tuesday February 10 2015




CHINESE tourists flew across the world to visit Barnsley's newest internet sensation - Benjamin the baby pygmy goat.

Benjamin, born at Pot House Hamlet, has been raised by Tom and Emma Horsfield at Horsfields Nursery after being abandoned by his mother.

Since then his story has gone worldwide, his adorable videos have attracted millions of views and thousands of people follow his social media pages.

Benjamin's latest international visitors flew 13 hours from Hong Kong - especially to meet him!

But the cute goat - who was infamously caught short on BBC's Look North programme - is now being readied for a more independent life outdoors.

Emma said: "Benjamin's doing very well - he's still on his milk bottle twice a day but is gradually being weaned off.

"We're planning to buy him a hut so he can live down by the stream along with the other goats. People love him!"
