Meet The New Kid!

Bonita had a big single buckling! He's huge! As tall as Friday and in great shape. He's eating well, running about, and looking healthy as any goat farmer can ask! He's got the size of the Alpine breed and the gentleness and tiny ears of the LaMancha. He'll go to a new home soon as he is sold (yours for $65, but while he is here he needs a name. What do you think I should call this monkey? Best name gets a postcard mailed with his illustration on it!

P.S. Tiffany who posted at 10AM on May 3rd, you won the fox. Email me for mailing info, please?

Congrats on the kid! How's Ida doing?

Because it is Thursday and he looks like a big, strapping fella. I'm going to say Thor. And I wish I was ready for goats, because he is adorable.

You called him a monkey, why not name him Monkey?

How about Boulder?!? I think that would be a great name. I also had a 13 1/2 lb nubian buckling born this year. It must be the year for Whoppers which would be another good name........lol

With those markings on his face, I'd have to call him Grendel. (From the comic books, not the ancient saga)

Since your new baby goat is part Alpine, perhaps his name should be Peter as in Heidi's best friend and fellow goat herder.

Fenimore aka Feni - because I'm weird. And his legs remind me of buckskin leggings worn by Native Americans in historical pictures (like chaps with awesome sewn into them)...which made me think of 'The Last of the Mohicans' which is part of the Leatherstocking Series by James Fenimore Cooper. Except he doesn't look like a James or a Cooper, well...maybe a James...but Fenimore is a fun word. Though a little elitish - and there's nothing worse than a goat with an elite complex...so maybe James.

So I am going to call him Jack White, while he's here. But it was CHemm who gave me the idea with pointing out The WHITE STRIPES! So postcard goes to you!
