Goat baby update, getting there on names, and Alys is feeling better

I've had a lot of happy goat baby time. I think that goat babies soak up a lot of stress, and then bounce it out onto the upside down food bowls. At various times, FireandEarth, Baobh and Bathalamus, and Blushing_Grace all visited goat babies recently.

Update on baby names:
38 - Constantine. He's my math error "plus a constant."
39 - ARGH! He's the cutest little roly-poly redheaded boy, and such a love. I want something that evokes Tom Sawyer-esque cute and mischievious, but I am NOT calling him Tom or Tommy.
40 & 41 - Yup, I think we can go with Gyre & Gimble. I'm going to be selling them anyway, so accessible names are more important than deep, meaningful ones. For ease of identification, Gyre is the one with the white on his tail.
42 - Trillian is fine with me, and CK seems to like it too. Awww, who's my cute widdle IM client... (Yes, the IM client was named after the book character too.)
43 - if we have Trillian, should we have Astor? Trillian Astra is the 4.0 version of the IM client.

As an important aside: Alys is almost back to her usual self today. She was up on her fence asking for grain this morning when I got to her side of the barn. I'm very relieved about that.
