Generally, when goats give birth it is either two twins or a single kid born. This was not the case on a farm in Ballinameen Co. Roscommon as one lucky farmer, Monika Vanourek, arose to find her goat, Lisa, had given birth to quadruplets, an extremely rare occurrence!
The unusual birth took place on the Happy Goat farm which produces cheeses and is a small family farm in the heart of North Roscommon county. The miracle occurrence took place in the early hours of Sunday morning, January 6th, with the four kids born fit and healthy!
The kids, which have yet to be named, are all male and are now being looked after by the daughter of Monika, Rosie, much to the delight of their new arrivals! Fancy seeing the cuteness of the new arrivals up close? Watch the below video, courtesy of Happy Goat Farm Ireland on Youtube!
