Animal caretaker Rex Probst (left) and animal scientist Kip Panter hold a 2-year-old Spanish goat that underwent a successful cleft palate repair while still in the womb. Panter used Spanish goats to develop an animal model for study of lupine-induced crooked calf syndrome. The model is now playing a role in developing procedures for prenatal repair of cleft palate in children.
