I did not have a good morning. I had horribly behaved goats. Violet was perfect on the stand, but when she hopped off and went to eat their breakfast, she picked up the feeder in her mouth, tipped it all out on the ground, and walked away. Grrrrr ... bunch of expensive feed now wasted. Gemma kept jumping up on the stand and jumping straight back off, and running away. When I finally got her up there and settled, Violet came along and tried to hop up too, of course that upset Gem and she tried to jump down, I ended up with a nubian sitting on my shoulders. Not fun. I finally locked Violet up, got Gem back up on the stand, and was almost finished milking her when she bashed the bail feeder with her head, and grain went absolutely everywhere, including in the milk pail. So I had to dump 3.5L of milk, net result being I have a milk order this afternoon that I wont be able to fill. She then took off and I had to go catch her. and :angry: and :veryangry: I was FURIOUS with them. I locked them back up and fed them and drove away. Didn't stay for cuddles this morning. They are normally picture perfect and today they tested me, well and truly. I know this afternoon it will seem silly, and I will love them all over again. But how do you all keep your patience when they test you?
