This Farmer’s Got Moves

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.”

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.


  1. 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!
