"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

The Results

Well, well, well ... The poll has ended and I have to say I am as surprised as anyone. It would seem that by popular (and might I add, repeated ...) vote, the new term is now 'grouple'. I thought surely 'glitter' would have topped the list, but just like on those E-Bay auctions, the 'grouple' faction waited and then sprang into action. Perhaps we should have them lobby in Congress. What do you think?

So now, I suppose then this makes me the daughter of Marquee and Marty from the grouple that included myself and Mars. A new word is born!

I believe I'm just as surprised as you are Marigold! I thought for sure 'Glitter' would win! It sounds prettier, don't you think?

On my farm, they will be glitters. I am so distressed by the unseemly grouple victory. And two of my chickens were just killed by a possum. It is not my day.

We call our kid group each year -"the Class of 2010 or whichever year it is" after enough years- it is hard to keep track without our trusty computer program of herd info anyhow - very good blog and fun hearing what your goats say- they are more literate than mine - with our little herd - it is "Mine mine mine mine - more - mine mine mine"
