The idea for Smiley Animals came about after site founders Abi Cushman and P.A. Smith took a trip to a bed and breakfast in New Hampshire. The grounds also provided a home to several horses and a two very happy goats.
Cushman and Smith toured the grounds, snapping photos of the scenery and the various farm animals. But one photo stood out. This picture looked like a pair of best buds posing for a snapshot… except one of the besties was a goat.
And so the quest to collect and share more smiley animal pictures began!
