Thomas Thwaites is the man so intrigued by goats he gave it all up to live with them in the mountains. Thomas spent three days as part of a herd in the Swiss Alps while investigating goat behavior. He used special prosthetic limbs made to enable him to move around on all fours easily. The designer even considered having a fake stomach fitted so he could eat grass, just like his four-legged friends.

He claims

“My goal was to take a holiday from the pain and worry of being a self-conscious being, able to regret the past and worry about the future.”

“I was able to keep up for maybe a kilometre or so on this migration down the side of this kind of rocky mountain, and then they just left me in the dust.”

“So I spent the rest of the day trying to catch up to them and eventually I found them again, and it was quite nice, in the actual soft grassy pasture bit.”

“But actually heading down the mountain was petrifying. Because if I fell I didn’t have any hands to stop me from hitting a rock.”

We don’t know how to feel about all of this, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t super impressed by his endeavor. Oh and that we love goats.
