KUALA LUMPUR: “Remos loves being photographed. Whenever he sees a camera, he would strike a pose and it would look like as if he was smiling in the photos,” said Ahmad M. Fadzil, a goat breeder.
And yes, Remos is one of his goats.
Photos of the male Saanen goat named Remos (most probably derived from the fact that he has crested hair, or jambul) went viral on social media and his ‘handsomeness’ totally stole the hearts of Netizens.
The status posted yesterday by Ahmad via ‘Muhammad Livestock Farm’ Facebook account had since garnered over 1,000 reactions, 1,000 comments and 3,000 shares.
Ahamd said at first, he was just sharing the post to promote his livestock business by uploading Remos’ pictures.
“I did not expect the photos to go viral. I have more than 17 Saanen goats. This one, however, is a good-looking one as he has a ‘jambul’ and he smiles when I take pictures.
“Some people asked me if I want to sell Remos. However, I have to politely decline and will offer them other goats from the same breed instead,” he told Harian Metro.
Recalling how he bought Remos, Ahmad said he bought the goat from a breeder in Terengganu for RM750.
“At that time, I wanted to expand my business by breeding dairy goat as there was a high demand for goat milk.
“When I was selecting some female goats, I saw Remos and how beautiful he was. I bought him immediately,” he said.
Ahmad said it wasn’t easy to care for the breed as it requires proper maintenance and clean environment.
Meanwhile, Ahmad said he runs the business with his twin Muhammad in Kampung Periang in Kuala Kangsar, Perak, without any farm helpers.
“Our father could not continue with the business so he handed it over to us.
“Muhammad took over first after he completed his studies at Maahad An-Nahdhoh tahfiz school in Pulau Pinang.
“I came in later as I wanted to focus on getting my diploma in accounting at Universiti Sultan Azlan Shah first,” he said.
Other than Saanen goats, the brothers also breed sheep and cows.
