    Ok!!! I have been given the OK to get a buck :cool:

    Now I need a name. He'll be Saanen (most likely that HerdBook one). Anyone got any name suggestions? :D

    Saanens are a swiss breed so maybe a swiss name. Can you get a picture of the buck? Is he a manly buck or just a goofy kid? I have a bunch of swiss names but some may not fit his looks. Does he need a powerful name? A silly name? a classical name? So many names but just 1 goat.

    Congrats. How exciting for you! :stars:

    There are some nice Swiss names on this site:

    http://www.babynology.com/top-swissbabynames.html

    I've got this site bookmarked since we have a pregnant (crossing fingers) Alpine and will soon have a very pregnant Oberhasli.

    Happy buck naming! Let us all know what you choose. And of course we want to see the lovely boy when you get him.

    Welll.... I'm waiting for a photo of him. Hmm I might phone Sean now and ask him :D

    Ok his grandparents on his sire's side are (were?) called Jennie and Jumacca, his sire was imported from the UK and is from Dutch White stock.

    His mother was bred by Sean, and has AN back in her and Saanen. She is milk recording and is over the 1000kg but he had a deficiency so her butterfat may not be over the 3% minimum to get her... whatever it's called. I know NADA about milk recording. After he started giving them cobalt with selenium and B12 or something their butterfat picked up but it was a bit late for this year. He isnt sure whether the male I'll be getting is out of Bawnowlaig "Dunla" or "Dearnla" (twins) he'd have to look it up. That ISNT how to spell them but I havent got a clue about Irish name spelling =] . They are both over 1000kg in the milk recording and one will probably make the 3% and the other probably wont (he thinks because of the deficiency).

    His herdname is Bawnowlaig and I dont have a clue what his other name is... I forgot to ask =]

    He is going to email me a picture - his digital camera is broken but he says he'll get one off his sister to use to take a pic. And he said he wont sell him to anyone else in the meantime seeing I'm almost-definite-about-getting-him. I said all I wanted was to see a picture so I would be definitely sure. I said I have the money now :greengrin:

    And I dont know when I'll get him cause I'm not gonna drive 150 miles there and 150 miles back to pick him up cause it'll be a horrific amount of petrol... so I'll have to wait until Sean comes up this way.

    Re: i AM getting the buck! NAAAAMMMEEES

    I asked the little kids what they thought I should name the buck.

    The three boys, aged 5, 6 and 6, agreed that it should be called "Jack".

    The girl, aged 4, said "Owen?"

    :shrug:

    I would have it start with a J to go along with the theme of his parents name. Jack would be cute, you could even play on that have it be Jackpot or I hit the Jackpot.
