A local dairy farm has welcomed a rarity with five new additions.
Mama goat Vanilla, at Fairview Farm Goat Dairy in Dallas, gave birth to quintuplets earlier this month. Five baby goats in one birth doesn't happen every day. In fact, the farm's owners said it only happens in about one of every 10,000 goat births.
They have had quadruplets born in the past at Fairview, but this was the first set of quintuplets.
All five baby goats already have names. They are: Janice, Charlene, Karle, Brian and Jim.
"Cuties all five, and destined to more dairy goat fame in their future," said a message posted on the farm's website.
Coincidentally enough, all five were born on April 2, the fifth anniversary of Fairview Farm Goat Dairy receiving its dairy license.
