Geepers: Rare 'goat-sheep' born on Irish farm
Hybrid animal the result of goats breeding with Paddy Murphy's
A rare half-goat, half-sheep hybrid has been born on a farm in Ireland.
Known as a "geep," the creature was born on Paddy Murphy's farm about two weeks ago after a goat got in amongst his sheep.
"I've never seen anything like him before," he told the Irish Farmers Journal.
Indeed, such births are rare.
The Irish Farmers Journal said it's never reported the birth of a healthy geep in the island nation.
Most goat-sheep hybrids die during pregnancy, according to the BBC, but this little guy is not only alive, but very happy and healthy.
"He even has horns like a goat and he is very quick on his feet ? He's so fast you'd have to get him into the pen to catch him," Murphy said.
