Richard Scrivener has told of his surprise at finding kid goat 'Jorvik' still alive after the severe weather two weeks ago:
A kid goat from Wasdale in Cumbria is attracting a lot of attention after his owner began documenting his progress on Twitter.
Richard and Sam Scrivener were devastated to find that four of their rare breed goat kids had perished in the severe weather two weeks ago, but found one goat weighing just one kilogram, alive in the corner of their farm barn.
They named the baby kid Jorvik, and have been tweeting his antics daily.
He has now become a Twitter sensation, attracting over 700 new followers in one week.
He is staying in the farmhouse at night and is put back in the barn during the day to encourage him to bond with a nanny goat.
Mr Scrivener says Jorvik loves to dance to the television and often sleeps on the couch.
