We have, as it turns out, a cross breed on the farm. This is not Tamworth-Ossabaw hog cross. Nor is it a Katahdin-Texel sheep cross.
It is a cross-species sheep-goat cross. What? Yes! It’s possible and it happened. Evidence below…
I have been told by farmers ‘in the know’ that the chance of this occurring is like lightning striking. And really, if you were a sheep, would you really be going for a billy goat? Did our girls learn nothing from their time with Mr Miserable?
Moreover, the chance of the offspring surviving, and not being mentally challenged, are even more rare.
But this little guy looks pretty good!
Ok, this is an APB for names, because the ‘geep’ is henceforth a farm mascot. Any ideas?
