Unexpected kids: Four sets of quadruplets
Becky and Philip Vierling, who live on 10 acres of the old Anderson homestead in Denmark Township, breed their Nubian long-eared goats every fall and expect kids the next spring, but this year was different.
"We didn't want as many kids, so we only bred four does," Becky Vierling said.
They received four sets of quadruplets.
"That's almost unheard of," she said. "Female goats (does) only have two teats, so the remaining kids must be fed by hand."
