Paddy Murphy's Geep (goat-sheep)

Post by Kitkat on Fri 4 Apr 2014 - 12:34

A rare, hybrid animal that is part goat and part sheep has been born on a farm in the Republic of Ireland.

The animal, referred to as a geep, was born about two weeks ago on Paddy Murphy's farm in County Kildare.

Mr Murphy has described the accidental birth as a "shock to the system".
