The Great Plains Zoo’s three Pygmy Goat kids now have names. The names were chosen through the Zoo’s annual Hy-Vee “Name the Baby” Contest.

The winning names are: Lucky and Louie for the two males and Lorelai for the female. They were submitted by Anna and Lorelai Aughenbaugh of Sioux Falls and selected from nearly 800 entries made at Hy-Vee stores and online.

Anna and Lorelai also won a three-foot plush horse and an opportunity to meet and feed the Pygmy Goat kids who were born on March 3 and March 7.

“The public always has a lot of fun with this contest, and we get hundreds of creative, amusing and unique names,” President and CEO of the Great Plains Zoo and Delbridge Museum of Natural History Elizabeth A. Whealy said in a statement. “Adults and children enjoy watching these Zoo babies grow up, and an opportunity like naming a Pygmy Goat helps families connect with nature in a more personal way.”

Lucky, Louie and Lorelai can be viewed daily in Hy-Vee Face-to-Face Farm.
