For a nanny goat to have triplets is about as rare as a leap year, but for a nanny goat to have triplets on the leap year leap day was a special treat for goat owner Gillette Ransom.

Recently Phil and Gini Bertoni paid a visit to Ransom, and here are some of the adorable photos they took of the three baby goats, the mama and some other recent arrivals at the Ransom farm.
