Due to the Texas drought my main problem during milking has mainly been flies. But it has been raining since yesterday and my place is now a swamp. I checked the rain gauge at 7am and had 3.63inches. My milking stall is semi outdoors and my doe had to walk through water to get to the stand. My mud boots got stuck. Not very pleasant conditions but I got thejob done. I am sure this is nothing compared to what some of you have had to endure to milk your goats. Want to share?

My milking stand is completely outdoors. When it rains, I set up an umbrella that covers most of the goat but only half of me. Usually, when it rains my back gets soaked. Either that or I wait for a lull, then rush out and milk before the rain picks up again. :laugh:
Our ground is mostly sloped, so all the water runs down to the real swamp that our property borders on.
