I have used hobbles on one of my does until she settled down. What I found worked best for me was to take a pair of dollar store dog leashes. I hooked/tied the snap end around the legs of the milk stand and used the handle to loop around each rear leg by feeding the leash back thru the handle to make a movable loop. The strap would be placed just above the pastern. This kept the rear hoofs from kicking or stepping in the milk pail but I was able to move them independently if I needed to do something with just one of them.

I also used a curb strap from a horse bit, but it was more restrictive.
