    Nope I'm going to tommorow though. Since I couldn't milk her on my old stanchion. The new on just came today.

    Although I did try some of her milk yesterday.

    IT WAS SO TASTY! Like half and half, or cream.

    Yeah it can be from 6-10% Butterfat, I'm thinking her's is in the 6-8% range. It was VERY rich.

    I was thinking that she looked nice. Nice flat long rump high withers, she is long too. Couldn't tell a whole lot since she wasn't set up though...

    Haha Ginger is the same way. She fights the whole time! She still does well in the show ring, so when they are nice you can still see it, even thought they are NAUGHTY!!!!!

    Azriel does that. She PLANTS her feet and will NOT move if she doesn't want too. She has actually passed out doing that before :roll:

    No no, Holly runs in circles and circles and runs and I'm afraid she'll snap her neck if she's not carefull.

    Yeah well she wasn't given enough socialization when she was a kid. >_< Really frustrating because she is getting better but only relatively

    instead of a collar try a harness. That will keep her from choking but still give you control.
