Let’s talk about the baby goats we’ve featured in our latest goat tote. We normally just select one or two cute kids. This year, we decided to spotlight 38 of them (out of 100s – and it was still hard to choose). Many of you have wondered how Farmer John decides on their names. Well, he starts off with the first letter of the mom’s name and goes from there. He does this to keep track of their lineage. And also – it’s cute. This is Part 5 of a 6 part series. There’s a link at the bottom of the page for the other parts.

If your name is Madeline (Maddy for short!), Malani, Marly, Melody or Morris Ilsa then you have a baby goat named after you!
