All kids love mud puddles. It doesn’t matter if they are a boy or a girl. Mud puddles equal endless fun for kids. They splash, jump and kick to their hearts content. There is just something about a hole filled with muddy water that screams “I’m fun! Jump in me!” to little ones.

I used to think that human kids were the only ones who just couldn’t resist a puddle. That is, until I saw this video. It doesn’t seem to matter what species of animal you are, jumping in a mud puddle is just plain fun. I have to admit, it is even fun for adults sometimes too.

I wondered, when watching this video, what the mother was thinking. Was she yelling at her son to stay out of the puddle, and then shaking her head because she knew she was just wasting her breath? The calf seems to be having so much fun that it can’t help but put a smile on your face, as you watch it frolicking in the puddle.

It seems all kids love mud puddles.
