Is there anything cuter than babies interacting with animals?
Answer: no, probably not – which is exactly what we discovered when we saw a video one mother uploaded of her young sons, Ollie and James riding the family’s pet sheep, Dotty and Sinead.
According to a report on Buzzfeed, the boys’ mother, Sally Steiner had no idea that her sons were climbing aboard the sheep and riding along like they were horses, but she recalls the night she started to think that something was up.
“I had heard some screaming and laughing the night before and asked the boys what they were up to – they said they were riding the sheep – I thought maybe they might have been trying to – but probably not successfully! We were outside the next day doing things around the place and when we were in the paddock they started playing with them and Oliver just jumped on Dotty.”
“She loves it – wags her tail and comes back for more.”
The video was originally only sent to “a few friends” before it was put on Facebook.
The original video has had almost three million views and tens of thousands of shares.
