I dont want to 'jinx' it by saying this... but we had a pretty good day milking! I didn't get that much milk.. about a half a cup, but Feta was not too jumpy.. she was waiting on the stand when I came out... and I tried the 3 legged goat method : lift the back leg and milk till she settles down. That worked like a charm!!!! Still working on my technique.. but I've complained so much lately... I thought I'd post a HAPPY story!! And thanks for all the encouragement and advice!!! I dont think I would have persisted if not for all of you cheering me on!!
