Britain’s oldest living pygmy goat who “looks great for her age” is celebrating after becoming a GREAT-grandmother.
Daisy, who is 19-years-old, saw the arrival of two baby pygmy goats and the start of her family’s fourth generation at Easingwold’s Maize Maze in North Yorks.
Farmer and maze owner Paul Caygill, 53, said Daisy was now just three years away from eclipsing ‘McGinty’ – the world’s oldest goat who died in Hayling Island, Hamps., in 2003 at the grand age of 22 years and five months.
McGinty currently holds the Guinness World Record – but Paul has faith that Daisy can live another three years and take the crown.
Mr Caygill said: “Daisy has been a fixture at the maze since it opened in 2003 and was the matriach of a big family that continued to grow and grow.
“At the moment Daisy looks great for her age – I can’t see the future but I believe that she could surpass McGinty and live for even longer.
“Daisy is in great shape as we look after her really well – and I am sure all of the visitors to the maze will be delighted to see how well she is doing.”
Daisy and her ever-growing family are the main attractions at Easingwold’s Maize maze which opens at 10am on Monday, July 25.
