this is a baby goat stampede.

get acquainted because DUMBO is about to get a goat farm art installation:
Artist Andrea Reynosa, who lives across the street from the “rat-infested, neglected lot” at 1 John Street that will be turned into a 42-condo development this summer, built a 6,000-sq-ft field full of green clovers on the site that will “blush crimson” (i.e. turn red) when the weather warms up.
Reynosa plans to bring in goats to “eat the clover in order to make way for condos,” reports DNAinfo, which is actually pretty neat. The installation, called John Street Pasture “was a great marriage of all of our views, including the developer, of what we wanted to do with the lot. The result is very simple and sparks a conversation about land use and sustainable agriculture in a transitioning city,” said Reynosa. The goat-free version is currently on view. (via)
