I have a doe that is currently in milk and was bred in early December with no heats since. I plan to continue to milk her until March and then dry her off for those last couple of months of her pregnancy. I have been milking her since June when I bought her and I hadn't ever shaved her, but now with her heavy winter coat I have had a ton of hair falling into the milk :shocked: . I strain as I milk, so it's not a big problem, but it kind of bugs me. I also have really wanted to get some nice pictures of her udder to put on my website and I definitely can't do it with her this hairy. My concern is that has been, and will continue to be pretty cold for the next several months. Most nights are in the 20's but tomorrow night is supposed to be -10 :GAAH: and temperatures like that aren't super rare. Would her udder be OK if I trimmed it? I wouldn't take it down to the skin, probably no shorter than a 1/2 inch. I don't want to hurt her, but I want pictures of her udder so that people can see it before they reserve kids. Not to mention the hair in the milk. What do you all think?
