They get names then earn something more appropo .

I have a Mys Maggie who got a Res Gr in a meat class, her name is now Meat Princess.
1st place Miss Demeanor is Booty Queen. Niether one answers to original name.

Brikhaus & Lil Skugirl who doenst always eat all her grain is Looseskru.
They are the Ding a Ling Sisters.

There is also a 2yr old x bottle baby out there who is now Baby Beluga.
Collectively they are "The Whales" and into pregnancy The TuboLards.
Grace the Nubian morphs into The Blimp at about 4mos along then turns into The Rail after kidding.
Nanette does not know the added meaning of No No infront of her name anymore. If I dont fasten the gate she will pull it open. At least she taught me to be diligent about that.

I stopped calling "Soooey!" cause everyone would inadvertantly run me over at grain time.

I have my poor little Sandy, no nickname for her. But her brother, an adorable little kid (angora cross) is snow white, and his name is ******. I call him the White Nightmare. He is a royal PITA when I am trying to care for Sandy, he constantly bombards the stall door when I am in with her, he screams ceaselessly for 15 minutes after I leave him.

I just got my two little does a few months ago and they were already named.

Nettie is 7 months old and she is the nice one. She gets called Honey, Sweetie, Sugar and such names.

Junebug is 5 months old and a ROYAL PITA!! :) When I bend over to get hay out, she reaches through the fence and tries to bite my butt. When I'm trying to trim Nettie's hooves, she's jumping all over us. She has figured out how to open the gate and now gives me the old evil-eye cuz I fixed it so she can't. She gets called Stinker-Bug, Sh**head, and similar names.

Our newest Boer goat was an adult this summer when we bought her. If she had a name I did not get it from the Amish man we bought her from but she had an ear tag #44. We had the seats out of our mini van and she seemed OK on the way home. We got to the barn and opened the 6 foot barn door to get her into the pen with the other goats. All the goats started their usual talk when I get to the barn. Im not sure what they say exactly but I think it's feed me or something of the sort. The van is parked just six feet from the barn door so I knew with the other goats she would go right in with them. I opened the door and out she came but much to my disapointment not to the barn but she headed for the woods. Like the dummy I am I went after her and she ran deeper into the woods. I finnally lost sight of her then darkness set in and I was exhausted and gave up.
Next morning having to go to work I went to the barn first to see if by chance she came back. Well this was not her home so why would she. She was not there. I had to go to work. I rode around the block hoping to see her but nothing. After work the search began again with no results, so I went to all the neighbors explaining what happened asking them to let me know if they seen her.
The next day at work I get a call from the 911 center. The local police officer has my goat a half mile from my home. I asked to leave work and went to get her. When I got there the officer did not have her but only seen her and chased her further into the woods. I was at my wits end. What will I do?
I went home and tied one goat outside of the barn. Wanting to be with his goat family her balled and balled. I went back to work hoping the lost goat would here his cries and come home. When I came home up to the barn I went. The goat I tied out was gone. I was ready to give up. I went in the barn to do my chores and there was the goat I tied out and the new goat.
I put them in the pen with the others and have been fine since. Her nickname is Magnum as she shot off like a 44 mag.
