Sweet!
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Congratulations!

My brother's family has a CAT named Bridie but it is male. Diaduit I imagine your goat is female, since I read Bridie is 12 times more often used for a girl?

My niece wanted to (or did?) name the kitten Bridget, but then found out it was male.
So the name was changed to "Bridie" after a male character in "Brideshead Revisited" by Evelyn Waugh.
[Matthew 8:26]  And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm.

[Job  38:1-5]  Then the Lord answered Job out of a whirlwind, and said: [2] Who is this that wrappeth up sentences in unskillful words? [3] Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid up the foundations of the earth? tell me if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

Jesus, Mary, I love Thee! Save souls!

Yes, Bridie here in Ireland is a very very common version of Bridget for ladies and Peggy comes from Margaret and my little goats are two females.

Would you like to shake hands with Pope 1 or Pope 2 -
 me (inspired by Dr Seuss) see: https://seuss.fandom.com/wiki/Thing_One_and_Thing_Two

But when he's dumb and no more here,
Nineteen hundred years or near,
Clau-Clau-Claudius shall speak clear.

They are in heat at the moment so I'm hoping to introduce them to King puc, light a few candles, finest forage and bobs your uncle hopefully we will have kids in the spring.  Have a confirmation this weekend so date night will have to wait another few days.

I was wondering how you can tell when your does are in heat? I used to have milking goats (Saanens). I had a bandana which we would wrap around a buck's neck for an hour or so. Boy was it rank. We'd keep the cloth in a jar with a lid and when we suspected a doe was  ready,  we would let them sniff the jar. If the doe was in heat they would immediately squat and pee. Then I'd stuff her in the hatchback of my Toyota a drive an hour to the next county where a friend had a buck.
