Geep: Rare 'goat-sheep' born on Irish farm
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.
The unexpected arrival is thought to be the result of mating between a goat and one of the sheep farmer's Cheviot ewes.
Mr Murphy has described the accidental birth as a "shock to the system".
He spoke to news correspondent Patrick Donohoe, from the Irish Farmers Journal.
