An Irish farmer claims to have accidentally bred a rare hybrid of a sheep and a goat.

The animal is popularly called a “geep.”

“I only have white-faced cheviot sheep and when this one came out it was black,” farmer Paddy Murphy of County Kildare told The Guardian newspaper.

“It was moving a bit too quickly for a lamb, its legs were very long and he even has horns like a goat.”

Murphy said he had noticed a goat mating with his sheep, but expected nothing would come of it, The Guardian reported.
