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.
