Winner of the 40 Goat Challenge!

Spring-like weather has brought rounds of kids (human and goat!) to the Learning Center over the past two weeks.  Our grand total of goats for the season is now 40: 10 mothers, 23 kids, 3 yearling does, 2 bucks, 2 angoras.  Nearly 40 children joined those 40 goats over the past three weeks for our spring break Kids with Kids day camps.  We gave the last group of campers the challenge of learning as many names as possible for all of the goats. 

I’m glad to announce our winner: camper Dorie, who did an outstanding job identifying over half of the goats. 

The prize? Naming one of the recent arrivals.  Here she is with Nike (named for the Greek Goddess who pre-dated the shoe). 

Other names this season fell mainly into the categories of mythology (triplets Perseus, Jason and Argonaut join moms like Aphrodite and Athena) and food (Ginger, Beans, Mocha, Caramel, Banana, Oreo, Brownie).
