It’s official: Farm animals are the coolest co-stars on Instagram right now. 

Old MacDonald's faves have been popping up on famous feeds all summer long, with celebrities sharing everything from #goatselfies and chicken cameos to horseback-riding videos and pig-side poses. It’s possible that the trend kicked off back in April, when Chrissy Teigen posted a video of herself at her happiest, playing with a miniature pig while surrounded by goats, ducks, and turkeys. Or do we owe our thanks to Nicole Richie—who often shares snaps of her own chicken coop at home—for paving the way for this flock of livestock-loving celebs? It’s anyone’s guess, but for now, we’ll just let you scroll down and enjoy 15 of our favorite farm-friendly ’grams.
