A couple months ago, someone started a subreddit dedicated to goat parkour videos. However, they weren't the only ones putting a spotlight on our favorite horned friends. Wired, HuffPo, Slate, and numerous other sources noted the trend. Taylor Swift joined in by featuring a goat in her music video for Trouble .
