2015 Naming Contest

Four goat kids need names so I’m again hitting up readers to submit names. Rules are simple – 1) no human names; 2) post your suggestions in the comments by August 10th. I’ll draw a name from all submissions and the winner, if local, can choose either a dozen eggs from my free range chickens or a bar of handmade goat milk soap. Sorry, if not local, you get a bar of handmade goat milk soap.
