    So I went to a farm to get hay on Friday - and they had their dairy cows in the area where the hay barn is. It seemed SOOOO weird to see more then two teats - it just looked so strange and foreign - like something was wrong with it.

    So then I was looking at an ad for a cow and calf and that was the first thing that I noticed -

    The worst part is trying to explain this whole "weirdness" to someone that is not a "goat" person - Like Hubby

    Uh....Allison, exactly how much sleep have you had lately??? :ROFL:

    You're right about the wierdness though....not only seeing more than 2 teats....can you imagine milking an udder that HUGE with it having ONLY 2 teats!

    I thought it was funny only seeing 2 on a goat! (Or horse for that matter) I was used to cows, dogs, and pigs who have more than 2.

    Don't feel bad. We raise cattle too and just yesterday I was just sitting there watching them while all the goats' water troughs filled up and one of our cows walked by and I almost blurted out "OMG she has extra teats!" I've raised cattle wayyyyyyyyyy longer than I've raised goats and it still caught me off guard :ROFL: It just looked so weird. Maybe it's because I milk the goats everyday so that's what's normal to me. I don't think it would have looked so weird and caught me off guard as bad if her bag was full but she just weaned a calf a couple of months ago so she's dry. It was weird seeing 4 of 'em just hanging there :ROFL:
