    WCS's Central Park Zoo's newborn mini Nubian goat, Abe, is apparently too cute to resist. The debut of Abe was picked up by Associated Press and the story has

    taken off. You can find stories about "the new kid in town" in the New York Post, New York Daily News, Newsday and dozens of outlets in print and online. Abe

    has also been featured on television news broadcast throughout the country, in Canada, and on the BBC. A sampling of the coverage is provided in the links below.

    Stay tuned-Abe might not be done yet.

    I'm really tired, but I'm guessing your goats are in the NYC zoo and they're doing really well. :) That's awesome, congrats! Way to publicize. lol

    Wow! That baby is gorgeous! :kidblue: :party:

    I'm not sure I understand. Are you the "Belmont" breeder referenced in the NY Daily News article? Did you donate the goats to the zoo, are you sponsoring them, have some other interest or what?

    Here's a new link to one of the articles I was able to access w/o starting a subscription or membership. Let's see if it works:

    That's funny - I heard on my local news station (in Va) about the kid being born and I thought I remembered someone posting on here that they had sold a goat (or a few?) to Central Park Zoo a while back. Congratulations :)
