A woman in Florida has gone to court over the paternity of five goats she bought from her neighbour because she believed that they were fathered by a pedigreed animal.
Briefly.co.za learned that in December 2019, Kris Hedstrom paid her neighbour, Heather Dayner, $900 for five Nigerian dwarf goats which were named Margoat, Rosie, Gigi, Bella and Zelda, Daily Mail reports.
Dayner operates Baxter Lane Farm and has been in the business of selling baby goats for the past 10 years.

The breeder of the goats reportedly told Hedstrom that the father of the kids was registered with the American Dairy Goat Association.
With that, Hedstrom had hoped that she would also be able to register her goats, which would make them more valuable in the market.
However, on getting to the organisation, they turned her away, saying the breeder never registered with them.
When Hedstrom wrote to Dayner about the situation, the latter offered to return her money and get the goats back.
The response did not satisfy Hedstrom as she now wants a DNA test of the father or her money with lawyer’s fees and court costs.
