    Binkey 10 days after a stillbirth on a 12 hour fill. She gave 3 and 3/4 cups...just under a quart :wink:
    She isn't perfect, can use a better medial, has a nice fore and teat placement and could use a wider higher rear IMO....Can anyone add?

    It's hard to see but I'd like to her foreudder to be more extended.
    She has a great udder and looks like it is holding up well!!

    She gave 3 3/4 cups in just one milking? Wow, I wouldn't have expected that from her udder! That is awesome! Bet it collapses nicely and that is something Nigerians need improvement in.

    I'd like to see a little bigger teats - but if she has that nice soft, pliable udder, then little teats aren't too much of a pain to milk from. :) She does need some more attachment in the rear.

    She has a very pliable udder...her teats look small but I find that she fits very well into my large hands...and she has great orifices, milks out very quickly.
    If I think of it, I'll get a pic of her empty udder tomorrow afternoon, also, I normally would have a closer clip of her belly and rear udder but with all she's been through I chose not to stress her further...with the closer clip of her belly, the fore is easier to see.

    I noticed some un even fill on the right...odd but it seems that I get more from her left which I thought I was doing pretty good with keeping her even after her singleton last year :sigh:

    And...my bad :oops: I mis read the cups I was using to measure....she's actually giving 3 and 1/3 cups 2x a day :oops:

    Still quite a lot. Good for Binkey and You! :) Are you drinking it all or freezing it or what do you use it for?

    Using it just like you would store bought milk...and also making cheese, ice cream, yogurt and soap. I'm doing all that with Bootsies milk for now because I can't use Binkey's milk for another 11 days due to the 10 day course of Penicillan she was on. My dogs are enjoying the treat though.

    Could you still use it for soap, though?

    You are my hero ;) I so wanna use my goats' milk instead of store bought milk!!
