Rare goat-sheep hybrid born in Kildare

A Kildare farmer is the proud owner of a rare hybrid between a goat and a sheep.

The half-goat half-sheep, which is known as a ‘geep’, was born to a ewe on Paddy Murphy’s farm two weeks ago today.

Paddy, who also owns Murphy’s pub in Ballymore Eustace, said the ‘geep’ has thrived since birth.

“He’s absolutely thriving,” Paddy told RTÉ News. “He’s running around a lot quicker than the other lambs which were born. He has much longer legs”

“The ewe has taken to him like he’s just another lamb. There’s no difference in how he’s been reared.”
