***More Goat Talk***
This is Mariah's udder..
Easy to milk and very soft.
She is a first freshener this year and is really doing good!
I am soo impressed with her..
Despite the fact she considers the milkstand her Spot.
And tries to stay there even though she is done
and there is No more food!
I milked her this morning..
Left some for her 2 babies and got a little over a half gallon.
This is Hope's udder..
This is second time around and she is doing excellent!
Another easy milker.
She is milking as much in one milking as her dam who is a 6yr old.
I got 3/4 of gallon left some for the 2 babies
and they will nurse till this evening around 8pm.
Then I put babies in with the other that get locked away at night.
This is April's udder who is Hope's momma.
She is 6yrs old..
She is being milked twice a day due to her traumatic kidding.
Her milk has come up to 1 1/2-2 gallons a day..
Not quite hit that 2 gallons mark!
I need to get my scales and weigh it but they got lost in the move..
I got her when she was almost 2 yrs old.
The farm had goats every where!!
At least 200 and babies everywhere.
I don't know how well she had been cared for.
Her udder attachments are the best but they aren't bad either..
I am Hopefully going to be milking her through this year...
Our goats are not spoiled in the least bit either!!
I had considered bottle raising all of them..
Glad I didn't this is much easier on my sanity!!Haha
But if it wasn't for my girls I don't think they would be as socialized as they are..
They play with them and baby them well!
