First Milking

Total after straining
I had intended to take a bit of video of the milking however I was needed to help hold the back legs.  They kicked and kicked until they surrendered and just ate.  We were generally good until they ran out of food.

The stand worked well.  I can see where there is some need for modification.  You will note the various modifications already for the head gate inclosure.  Wood, baling twine, then finally part of a coat hanger.  All three worked to various degrees.  We are planning to actually have the stand against a wall for it's permanent placement.

Our smallest adult goat, Sheri

One of our largest goats, Nanny
Ernestine is in training
Ornery felt a bit left out so we had to let him join in.
We figure it is good for all the goats as this will be a good
way to trim their hooves also.


  1. That stand looks GREAT! And I just love the last picture... too funny! Thanks for sharing.
