Lets start with Dipstick. Dipstick is a seven-month-old goat who will be making his debut in the market goat competition at the Allen County Fair this Friday. Dipstick didnt arrive on planet Earth with his name. Bryce Culbertson gave it to him. Its Bryces goat. Hes Dipstick, explained the 9-year-old, pointing to the goats brown-tipped tail, because his tail, its like it got dipped in chocolate.
Then theres Karas goat. Kara is Bryces little sister. Shes not presenting anything at this years fair. Shes too young. Still, she has a goat of her own, Chocolate Chip, and she wanted to show it off. Its a good-looking goat. Shell show it at next years fair. I call it Chocolate Chip, said Kara, because she has lots of brown dots all over her, so its like chocolate chips are on her, so we just named her Chocolate Chip.
I would have named her Oreo, said Bryce.
