The Goat for April is Maggie Doodle!

  This is Maggie!  And of course, she has nicknames!  Maggie Doodle, Doodle Girl and Doodles.  She knows all four names and always responds when she is spoken to.  If I talk to her she will answer and usually come over to me.  With a smile!

Maggie Doodle is 7 years old now. ...

Well I missed February!!  It started out very busy then I had to catch up and never got to this!  Anyway, here is Inga!   Inga-Binga is what we call her.  Well one of the names anyway!  She also goes by Bing, Binga, Inga-Bing as well has her given name, Inga!  This name diversification happens a lot on our farm.  Sometimes the names vary greatly!
