Merge[edit]

I don't think this should be mered with Sheep-goat chimera. A chimera is clearly distinct from a hybrid. -- Kaszeta 22:23, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Since nobody has spoken against it, I'm removing the merge notice. -- Kaszeta 13:48, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
You were quite right. Salopian (talk) 21:01, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

The 'Toast of Botswana'[edit]

The animal does not seem to have been known as that. It was just a description in a newspaper article. I also think that that article should be merged here. Salopian (talk) 21:03, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Photos of potential sheep-goat hybrid[edit]

I don't know for sure, but these photos I took a couple of years ago could potentially be a sheep-goat. Originally I called it a cow sheep (koeschaap in Dutch) because of the cow-like speckles. Only later I realized that it was more likely to be a sheep-goat hybrid. I don't know if the animal is still alive though. But I'll check it. Notice especially its 4 horns. photos — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.164.50.242 (talk) 05:10, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Forget about what I said, it's probably a Jacob's sheep Jacob (sheep) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.164.50.242 (talk) 13:08, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

New birth[edit]

Seems to be a fairly reliable reference to a Geep in the news http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-26882203 JeepdaySock (AKA, Jeepday) 14:24, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

Male geep in Holland fertile??!![edit]

It says in this text that "On May 12, 2011, a healthy and fertile geep was born in Bant, Flevoland, the Netherlands. The geep mated with a ewe and on December 25, 2012 two healthy lambs were born." This goes against current axioms in genetics: that male offspring of different species in mammals are necessarily infertile (because they do not have two X chromosomes). Can someone substantiate this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.245.120.202 (talk) 13:41, 31 May 2016 (UTC)
