“Apparently the goats at the petting zoo REALLY like human babies, but she doesn’t look too amused.” -Nadine B.

Vintage Cliché Spoiler

For countless generations, anyone expressing incredulity or skepticism could rely upon the phrase “I’ll believe that when pigs fly.” By absurdly granting the common pig, perhaps that most earthbound of animals, the gift of flight, the maxim became a plainspoken, potent expression of the impossible.

And then this happened.

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

(Peering through magnifying glass) These two little peanut Nigerian Dwarf baby goats, known as kids, were born this spring to “Cupcake” & “Rodney” of the Goat Yard at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo. If you are wondering what the kids’ names are, we are too! Anybody out there know?

UPDATE: We got names! Er, we got four names …er, which goes where we’re not totally sure  :-)

“Farmer Jon Appleby got the surprise of his career one week ago, when triplet calves were born on his farm in Wirral, England.”

“I couldn’t believe it,” the 44-year-old veteran farmer told TODAY.com of the rare phenomenon. “It was quite a shock.” When the cow went into labor, Appleby stayed close by for the first two births, then left, assuming the excitement was over. He returned an hour later, only to find one more baby by her side. “We’ve never had triplets before.”

Twins are somewhat common among bovine births, triplets and quadruplets are estimated at approximately 1 in 100,000 births.
