Well, Cocoa's little boy (Joey) went to his new home last evening, (along with one of Izzy's boys). This morning she was wandering aimlessly around with nothing to do, looking pretty full. So, I decided to milk her. She'd never been milked before as she is a ff. Well, she enjoyed the grain on the milk stand...but she didn't really enjoy me messing with her. But, we persisted and she started to settle down. I could tell when she relaxed a little, the milk really started to flow. I was all happy with myself, almost done I thought, boom she knocks the pail off the stand! Boo Hoo! So, I saved enough to lighten my coffee! I'll try again tonight. So, Cocoa is a sweety, although not my prettiest doe. Here's her udder from this morning before milking. Note: her teats are not positioned perfectly, but she is all hunched up which makes her look worse! http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc12 ... ig/016.jpg http://i216.photobucket.com/albums/cc12 ... ig/015.jpg I thought I was getting a couple of cups, but I didn't get it measured, of course. Can't wait to do it again! So, if I decide to keep milking her I'll have to adjust my milkstand (obvioustly the plans I had where for full size goats) lol. I've milked cows before (in my youth, a looong time ago), so getting those tiny little teats to work was fun, kinda like "Keystone Cops milk a goat"! I could tell which teat Joey likes the best though. So, anyway practice makes perfect I guess. So much for our first attempt.
