Sugar and Spice and all things nice: The votes are in, and the public picked sweet names
August 4, 2016
They hop sideways. They jump. They run in a blur around the goat yard. They nap. They nurse.
The twin sister Nigerian dwarf goats born two weeks ago at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium are small bundles of energy that entertain kids and adults alike.
And now (drum roll, please!), they have names.
Fittingly, considering the goats’ very different coloring, members of the public picked Sugar and Spice from three slates of names submitted by zookeepers. The also-rans were Opal and Agnes and Coral and Elsie.
Appropriately, zookeepers chose to name the sister who is white with tri-colored patches Sugar. Her brown-and- tan twin is Spice.
