Sarah and ?

As I mentioned late yesterday we had quite the surprise around the Farm.
And it wasn't Abby's temper tantrum for missing her day to post on the blog.
(A temper tantrum from Abby is NEVER a surprise!)

Sarah the goat was not due to have her kid until late October.
But she or her little buckling decided October 1st was a good day for kidding.
He is a cute little guy and he is my grandkid!


Instead of the publicist and male person picking a name I said I wanted my readers to help name him so I am going to have a contest!
I am asking you to put in suggestions for names and then the publicist will pick her favorite.

I am going to give a prize!
Three bars of my rich soap!
But to make things fair I will let Random.org pick the winner for the soap.
Sometimes the publicist is weird in the names she picks for the kids around this place....

But back to Sarah.
She was a lucky doe. 
She got a whole bowl of apples all to herself!

A whole bowl!
Can you imagine?
I never got a whole bowl of apples after kidding. But then I never had kids during apple season.

The new baby is mostly black with a white splotch on his head and on one side.

Luke sure does make a lot of kids that look like this.
He also makes a lot of bucklings. The male person is not happy about this.


So here are the rules for the naming contest:

1. enter your choice for the new kid's name in the comments.
2. be sure to leave me your email address so I can contact you if you win.
3. I will take entries for one week - the poor thing will need a name soon you know - so the contest will end on October 9th.
4. Random.org will pick the winner of the 3 bars of soap and the publicist will pick her favorite name for my grandkid.
5. you can enter as many names as you like but don't be silly.

  10. Since your name is Pricilla and you are the granddam I looked up the Mayflower passenger list - tee hee. There are a lot of Johns, a Jasper, a Bartholomew, some Edwards, Myles of course, Elias, and a funny man with the name of Wrestling Brewster! Wow.

  11. In sticking with my "A" year, I suggest, Apollo, Aero and Aspen

  12. I believe a Halloween name would be good for him. Batty!

    ReplyDelete
  13. My human thinks you should name him Buster, after her favorite silent comedian, Buster Keaton. (Buster's birth name was Joe, but he was nicknamed Buster by Harry Houdini when as a toddler, he fell down a flight of stairs, only to sit up and laugh.) Oh - my email address: sparkle at sparklecat dot com.

  14. My choice is Moon because I think the side patch looks like a crescent moon.

    But my daughter says he should be Marcus.

    She says to tell you to just call him Marcus.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Or, you could just call him "Early"

  16. Well we like the name 'Splotch' for his white spot. He is really cute. Can't wait to see more pictures.

  17. I think his name should be Cappy. On account of his little white cap.

    ReplyDelete
  18. He's cute.
    This is always hard for me because I immediately think of Swedish nicknames that no one would want to have! So I'll have to put my English-language thinking-cap on. My suggestions are:

    Bucky
    Whitey
    Blacky
    Ricky
    Tommy
    Heathcliff

    There are already some good ones suggested by other readers here, so I'm sure you will pick something appropriate.
    I would love to win some soap.
    Please let me participate. If I win I'll pay for postage to Sweden.

    Best wishes,
    Anna

  19. Blackie! He is adorable - I just want to hug him right now.

  20. I think King Arthur would be a good name for a cute little buck.

  21. I don't have a name, but I cracked up when I read Daisy's suggestion--I initially thought she wrote "Crappy"!! :0

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a little sweetie!
    A few names seem appropriate...

    BOWS (Black on White Spots)
    Blackie
    Whitespot
    Patches
    Coal (aka Cole)
    Octavius (for October 1st birthday)

  23. Heeeeeeeeeeeey Pricilla, how about Elvis?
    That black coat sure is reminiscent of the original Elvis!!!! (he used shoepolish to get that beautiful blue-black colour, yours is natural!)

  25. These are wonderful suggestions.

    I still like Edward. :)

  26. the more i think about it i agree with marie. he is a dark guy and born in october and a bit vampire looking and with twilight being such a hit, edward would be appropriate.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Since there has already been a Harry (a second Harry would be OK though), my suggestion is Harvey. Then again, how about Mikey? jones_ps@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  28. My first thought was Nicholas.

  29. What about Jasper or Emmett? After the vampire suggestions.

  30. My first thought was a reverse of Sarah, 'Haras' since it's got to be a little bit of of a 'haras'ment that he was born weeks early. :)

  32. Oops, sorry about the double up--the computer said there was an error and didn't seem to post--guess it changed its mind.

    Other options on names are well, you've already said it--"Splotch"

    Or "Swoosh"

  33. Such a cute buckling! How about Damon? Since he is mostly black but with a little white.... You know like Damion of "The Vampire Diaries" he is mostly dark but with glimmers of goodness :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. People are coming up with such great names here. But what the heck? I'll throw one in the hat. How about Billy?

    ReplyDelete
  35. The first name that came to my mind is Duke!

    ReplyDelete
  36. So cute... Junior after his Daddy

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ok another thought.... Chip (as a chip off the ole block)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am on a roll LOL He is a buck, a buck is a dollar and George Washington is on a dollar bill..... so what about George!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am still thinking of kid names. There has been a Timmy but what about a Jimmy. I have a "kid" name Jimmy. He is a big, handsome, strong "buck" now.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ducky! Ok so I don't own chickens so I immediately saw a duck *not that I own ducks either). And I like David McCallum from NCIS, who plays Ducky. He was also Ilya Kuriakin (sp) in The Man from UNCLE so there's Ilya too. ;)

    I can't wait for little no-name to have a name (even if little no-name sounds so cute).
