So I got my Alpine milker today that my friend gave me so that I didn't have to pay for formula as I am positive I am going to have some bottle babies - and I have 1 that is due anyday that will be a bottle baby for sure. Well, I went to milk her for the first time - mind you I have never milked before! She was SOOOOO easy! She only has 1 functioning teat and I she was still nursing until today when I took her at about noon (it is almost 9 now). I got 3 full cups of milk in the fridge now and I spilt probobly 1 more cup (saw dirt and a fly in it - fly was dead - but still grossed me out and I poured the milk out - LOL!) I am so excited. It took me about 15 minutes start to finish and that was with getting more pellets (ran out which was not a good thing) and with trying to figure the whole thing out. So I will let you know what I get in the morning as that will be 2 milkings in 18 hours. Woo Hoo!
