Couple names newborn goats 'Greg' and 'Fishel'

Posted February 20, 2013

A viewer wrote to us on our WRAL Facebook page today and shared the cutest picture of two newborn goats, or "kids" as they're called. Guess what they're named? Greg and Fishel. Check out the sweet story below:

My wife Michelle and I are the proud new parents of two male kids. We were trying to figure out what to name them when we saw Greg Fishel's birthday was yesterday. I told her, "Thats it, one will be Greg and the other Fishel." Greg the goat is serious when you are in front of him, but Fishel the goat is the joker, kinda like Greg Fishel, serious and a joker. We have been watching WRAL-TV since we could walk and enjoy Greg's humor, never a dull moment. So, since we had these two, we decided to name the "kids" after a good natured "kidder" Greg.

    Funny story. Greg has a good sense of humor. I'm sure he got a kick out of this.

    Now they need to get an male English Bulldog puppy and name him Crabtree.
