My 2 Nubian FF does are recently freshened, and I'm having issues with them being difficult about the milking stand. My one doe, freshened 8 days ago, had triplets and she's doing well with feeding them. My other doe, freshened 4 days ago, had a single buckling and he's only nursing one side, so I'm having to milk her out on the other side every day. Single mom will jump up on the stand just fine and tuck into the grain, but when I milk her she stops eating. She won't eat the entire time, and usually by the time I am done milking the other doe has screamed enough to upset her and she just wants to get back to the stall. They don't like being separated, even though they can see each other and their kids the whole time. The kiddos don't cry at all about moms being taken out for milking/feeding, so it's not the kids upsetting them, just each other screaming. Triplet mom is a whole different set of issues. She won't climb up on the milking stand at all. She used to, before she got as big as a house with kids. Now she acts like she can't, and honestly, I can feel her hips clicking a bit when I try to boost her back end in encouragement. Since she's not on the stand, she isn't restrained at all with a head stanchion, which makes attempting to milk her a new rodeo. She screams and kicks and flails and runs around and chokes herself and climbs the walls. I'm not trying to milk her out, just a few squirts to get her used to the concept so that I don't have issues once her kids are weaned. She absolutely refuses to touch the feed I put out for her, and it can't tempt her to climb onto the stand. I'm feeding alfalfa, but I'm concerned about body condition for both does, especially triplet mom. I haven't changed anything about their grain. They had no problems eating it before freshening--they're goats, after all. But once I touch teats, food is no. I'm so frustrated. I've spent a long time and a lot of effort raising these does specifically for milking, and they're hurting themselves by not eating their grain. Triplet mom has been doing this since she freshened. I thought hunger would convince her over time, but it's been 8 days and she's still refusing. What do I do?
