Kathryn Harnish and Rob Lawless moved to their hobby farm in Houlton, Maine 10 years ago.

One of the animals on the farm is a Nigerian dwarf dairy goat named Buttermilk.

She is 6 weeks old and she is a new YouTube sensation after video of her jumping over other goats made it on the Today Show recently.

"One of my colleagues from out in Ohio had said I think I saw your goat on the Today Show. I thought 'yeah, right.' Then another colleague who lives in Houston said your goats are on the Today Show. I better go figure this out, so I went and looked and sure enough there they were talking about our goats from London," Harnish said.

Harnish posted the video and said if the video got a thousand hits, she and Rob would make a $25 donation to Farm Sanctuary that helps rescue and rehabilitate farm animals.

The video has not only been seen by thousands, but millions.

Harnish says Buttermilk has been jumping around pretty much since she was born, but what they captured on video was a first.
