Since I know you are all dieing to know what we ended up naming all our baby critters this year.
Please allow me to introduce you.
Left: Jacob (darker fur than his brother, with a faux mohock stripe on his head)
Right: Edward (lighter fur with brilliant blue eyes)
Yep. My teenage, obsessed with "Twilight", daughter named them.
Shain and Eli refuse to call them by these names. So they will also be know as Ed (or Eddie) and Jake.
The goat kids are also doing very well. They have grown nice and big from drinking milk from both their mother and my second doe (which was not necessarily my plan). They are now in the process of being weened.
Left, red collar, female: Pearl
She will stay here on the farm and eventually be our third milking doe.
Right, black collar, male: David
He has been castrated (we don't need another buck around here) and will be a companion wether for our breeding buck.
Since I let Megan name the kittens, Eli gets to name the boy goat; and he keeps changing his name. But for now I guess he's David.
So everyone who needs a name around here now has a name.
Some animals don't get names because there are too many of them (chickens), can't tell them apart anyways (ducks), or are destined for the freezer (pigs and meat chickens).
