Pictures show the four rare newborn baby goats Harry, Ron, Neville and Hermione born at White Post Farm Farnsfield Notts
See Ross Parry copy RPYGOAT The newborn kids astonished everyone when mother Gemima gave birth to FOUR of them.
Goats usually only give birth to twins, so when mum Jemima delivered three farm manager Anthony Moore was surprised.
But the shocks continued, as the five-year-old Boer goat – who only arrived at White Post Farm in Farnsfield, Notts., two weeks ago – still looked “big”.
Anthony, 32, told: “I couldn’t believe it.
“We’ve sometimes had triplets and that excites us but Jemima still looked big after the three and it was clear she was still in labour.
“Brett, the stocksman said, ‘I’m sure there’s a fourth one’, and we all had our fingers crossed because its’s never happened here before.
“We were shocked when she delivered another. I’ve never come across quads before, it’s really unusual.
