Hi Everyone, anyone have ideas for naming this sweet little red doe? My daughter is drawing blanks and so am I! Her barn name is Pumpkin. Normally we'll just pick out a favorite song title, but even I am struggling figuring out a fitting name. Story behind this silly little 3mo doe is, her dam was a really good producer who struggled through this pregnancy - she had gotten wormy on us after I did fecal in March where I only saw 2 eggs, 2 weeks later she had a worm load, it was crazy, so I fought to get her through the last bit of her pregnancy, she was a true fighter. Induced her and she kidded 3 beautiful babies, or what i thought should be 3. We lost her 2 days later to a retained kid and I will ALWAYS feel so guilty, as I was in her checking for anymore kids and I just couldn't find a 4th one. She is deeply missed in our herd. We have decided to retain Pumpkin at least for now and see how she grows out for breeding potential.
So... I'd really like a good name for this one.
Dam = Takin' Shots (Jazzy)
Sire = If You Dare (Maverick)

I was trying to get my tired brain to bring both parents names together somehow. Or if you all recommend a good country song as my daughter is totally into country music. This picture is from late June.

Happybleats - thank you, it was a hard loss, especially knowing if I had gotten the 4th kid out she'd still be here. I couldn't find it, I was up past my elbow and just couldn't find a kid. Very devastating. Funny you mention Queen of Hearts because we just had one last year or the year before we named 'Queen of my heart' (Hank Williams Jr).

Moers - I know, I keep thinking of something like that! I love Garth and I love that song.

You'll laugh but I came to the point today I told my daughter.... Name her after this song.... I was listening to Prince 'Purple Rain' lol. Honestly, I love that song, not a big fan of Prince, but that song is pretty awesome.
Song meaning:
Prince explained the meaning of the song as follows: "When there's blood in the sky... red and blue = purple. Purple rain pertains to the end of the world and being with the one you love and letting your faith/God guide you through the purple rain."

Hmmm....
