What happens when a goat and a sheep love each other very much? Usually, not a whole lot, but that’s not the case on this Irish farm. A rare goat-sheep hybrid was born to County Kildare farmer Paddy Murphy, and apparently the fuzzy little creature is called a “geep.” Most adorable thing ever to grace the Internet? Perhaps.
Murphy told The Irish Times that this is a one-off “pure shock to the system,” and that it’s unlikely that more geeps will be bred in the future. According to the Independent, “this form of cross-breeding is extremely rare because of the genetic distance between both species. The geep usually dies either during the pregnancy, or is stillborn.”
