We milked, and filtered. We are having an issue with keeping Mama in the stanchion long enough to milk her out. We tried putting something behind her to stop her from backing up. We saw the previous owners do such a thing. It was a no go as she tried to turn around in the stanchion. I am slightly afraid to use a neck chain with her. She isn't use to it, or milking. Anyone have any suggestions?
Eddie is easier, she will stop to get scratched and allows me to clean her up without being in the stanchion. We have noticed that her udder is slowly getting larger, yesterday evening however, it was huge!
This weekend, my 10 year old went camping as a boy scout. This meant no parents. How sad. They headed south, to Ok. He had a blast and even got to pet a red fox cub.
