You see the goat genes mean this geep is faster than its lamb contemporaries; goats are just better than sheep!'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 confirmed that the geep appeared to be healthy and "thriving" and was able to run faster than other lambs that were born around the same time.
"He's unbelievable," he said. "He's so fast you'd have to get him into the pen to catch him. There's no chance you would catch him otherwise."'
