This is the heartwarming moment a goat farmer shares an intimate lunch with his favourite buck as the pair take turns sharing a tasty sandwich.
Ahmet Suicmez, 28, filmed himself eating the bread next to the goat in his village in the Cayeli district of north-eastern Turkey’s Rize Province.
The footage shows Ahmet holding the bread in his hand and taking bites from it while the goat tries to get a piece for itself.

At one point, he holds a piece of bread in his teeth to tease the goat which tries its best to take it from his mouth but has to content itself with taking little nibbles as he will not let go.
Ahmet later shared the amusing clip on social media where it made a big impression on animal lovers.
Some of them criticised him for teasing the animal but Ahmet replied that he loved his goats and saw them as his friends.
Netizen ‘Filiz Gokdereli’ commented: “You don’t have to eat so much, give more to the goat”, ‘Gursel Yildirim’ said: “Bon appetit to both of you”, and ‘Minecraft Krali’ added: “This act is so beautiful, applause!”
Cayeli is the centre of tea-growing in Turkey and a perfect environment for goats because of the legendary steepness of its hills.
The late Turkish rock star Baris Manco sang a version of a local ballad about a man so in love he was prepared to haul his household over the mountains of Cayeli for his sweetheart.
