Names and More

 I want to thank everyone for their suggestion for  names, there were a lot of good ones and it was a hard choice.  I had to spend some more time with the girls to see what name would fit them.

Dumm-da-da-dummmmm......With out further ado I present to you ......

Purl...


I just love that name!


And Little Red......


At first I was going with Knit because it was so cute, a future goatie will surely get that name, but it wouldn't stick. Then I wanted to call her Minnie and have Minnie and Purl...but that didn't seem to suit her just right either. Minnie will also be reserved for a future goatie! The Boy and I just kept calling her Little Red so I guess that is the name she is supposed to have!



They are supper sweet and since they are not real old and were bottle fed when I go out to feed Dolly Doodle they come looking for their bottle too! Actually the come up every time we go out there happy to have just some scratchins and oh,  is it so nice to give then what they want! They are soooo soft and wonderful feeling!

I though I would show you all how big Miss Dolly Doodle has gotten! The only way to keep her sort of still enough to get a picture was to have the Boy hold her! He was happy to  because he is usually toting her around every chance he gets anyways, although he is not smiling here because he is trying to hold on to Miss Squirmy Pants!


Speaking of being toted around... Oscar Peterson is pretty fond of it too!


It is no wonder The Boy is always toting around some critter like they don't have working legs...I did the same to him when he was little! I am surprised he ever learned to walk as he spend most of his time balanced on my hip as I went about my day until he got too heavy  for me to tote him anymore! Seems like yesterday...it makes me smile to know even though he is all boy, rough and tough, he has a loving and tender heart and I am for sure our critters think he is pretty great too!

I love the names. Did you realize Millie's twin sister is Minnie Pearl? So I definitely approve of your names! Love the picture of the Boy and Dolly! She is getting so big and cute!

Oh they are just so precious, they look like your fingers could get lost in the softness! Good Names! Miss Dolly is adorable too! Sigh, no goaties here. No chickens, nothing.....

My back is curved sideways, supposedly from carrying a kid on my left hip for quite a few years. If it wasn't mine, it was my sister's kids, or someone I was babysitting. I'm talking years.....

Yes, the names do suit them very well, Melodie. You did good. :)

So cute and fluffy. Your boy looks like he's a good helper around your place. That's great! :)

Those are great names. I especially like seeing boys caring for animals. There is just something so right about that.

I love the name/s Purl and Pearl too, been saving it for just the right goat. Boy is growing right it front of me it seems. Of course, I like seeing the Bourbon Red toms in the first photo.

I do love the names chosen, and they fit perfectly. So adorable and fluffy, I just want to hug them!! It's so nice that The Boy grew up so nicely. I always say... anyone who has a love for pets is good people!! Have a wonderful, safe and prosperous 2011 :)

Texan said...

Holy Cow Dolly is big like Brody her brother... by far the biggest kids Bossy has ever had! They are both so cute too...

Okay I am loving your wool babies!! I can't wait to see the yarn!! and those two little wool babies, like Dolly landed in a pretty cushy place to live I might add :O)...

What a sweet young man you are raising, Melodie. :) It's nice to see.

I LOVE the names. Isn't it funny how some names just don't "stick"?
