My 2 Alpine does have been here for 11 days now. I expected them to be stressed out from the move here. They left a herd of around 10 other goats and grazing on 200 acres to come to my house where they are (temporarily) in a 12x36 barn stall (part inside and part outside run). I have two wooden spools in there and they do like to be on them a lot. They are not with my ND's as I feel the space is just too small for four goats and I want the ND's to have plenty of space to get away if the big girls get nasty toward them. (We are putting up a large fenced area that will be, hopefully, done in the next month.) Both girls were consistently giving 1 gallon of milk a day. Two weeks before they came to my house they were moved to another farm for just three days (their owner had to go out of town and that was the easiest for her and her friend to milk). I went over each day and helped milk so I could learn and get experience. They gave about 14 cups through that weekend, they were with multiple other goats then also, including three from their own herd. Christina is now giving me 3 -5 cups a milking and Carnation between 5 - 6 /12 cups each milking. Christina started acting up a little (on the milk stand) two nights ago and ended up with her foot in the bucket (the cats and dogs loved that!). I tied her back feet down the next milking (per instructions from their former owner and another goat friend) and she hasn't budged them since. Normally, they never move their back feet on the milk stand - one of the things I love about them. They are getting feed each time they are on the milk stand (Classy Goat mixed with BOSS) and free choice grass/alfalfa hay. We started with just grass hay and then went to the grass/alfalfa mix since they were totally on pasture. Eventually I'll give them straight alfalfa. Can I expect them to get back to the gallon a day? Or, is this all I'm going to get until they freshen again? Might they even stop giving milk now?
