Miniature Horse And His Goose Buddy Are Looking For A Forever Home

In this world there is nothing induces quite a response of cuteness quite like unlikely animal friendships. And the latest one to give social media that cuteness overload, was a mini-horse and a domestic goose.

The Bucks County Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Pennsylvania rescued Waffles the mini-horse and Hemingway the goose from a farm that had poor living conditions. Six-and-a-half-year Waffles old and Hemingway, who’s age is unknown, made quite the adorable little pairing.

And this unlikely twosome were put up for adoption together – since the shelter didn’t want to break up these BFFs.

As the shelter’s Facebook announcement revealed, their adoption fee is $300.
