If you haven’t seen this viral video of Jay Lavery of Sharon Springs, NY dancing for his goats, then you’re missing out!

Think you can’t do this? Here’s what Jay says on his Facebook page:

“It’s that time of the year for the Lets Move Challenge. Dancing is how I stay warm in the barn and I never know when I’m going to break out into a dance. But what most people don’t know is that 15 years ago I had a traumatic back injury that caused me to have several back surgeries including a discectomy and a spinal fusion and never ending back pain. Dancing along with yoga and meditation are my only alternatives to pain medication. So I hope this can inspire anyone to move in spite of pain and I hope this puts a smile on your face for the New Year.”

    We REALLY enjoyed The Funnies video of the man dancing for his goats! I do Zumba and that music sounded like a perfect song for our class. If you have any way of learning what the song is, I would appreciate knowing it.

    Thank you for all you do! We look forward to Tuesdays just to read On Pasture!

      Hi Libby,

      The song is Cheap Thrills, by Sia.
      Glad you liked it. It’s hard to sit still to!
