PETER the billy goat is getting used to a new home at Spitalfields City Farm in the hope that he will soon get friendly with their female goats.

The Golden Guernsey goat from Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm in Ipswich travelled to the Buxton Street farm on November 6 to be used in their breeding programme.

It is hoped he will breed with two of the farm’s female goats.

Farmyard manager Helen Galland said: “He’s been sent to have a romance in London.

“It can be fraught with problems and we didn’t have a male on site least year so nothing happened then.

“Once the girls are in season though, they will want to meet him.”

Peter, who will stay until the end of November, is being kept in a stable because of his large horns but can be viewed by the public.

The farm is looking for individuals or companies to sponsor the programme with the opportunity to name newborn goats for £100.
