Moving the goats marked the change from milking outdoors to milking in the Milking Parlour.
The complete separation of babes & moms was a bonus for me, because Girly-girl allows me to milk her....sort-of. She is a very stubborn goat when she thinks she is done, she lets me know by kicking and sometimes she kicks the milking pale over. I now know how the saying "Never cry over spilt milk" came from. Girly-girl can really "get my goat"!
The milking time begins with a walk to the parlour as these videos taken by our good friend Anne-Renee depicts.
At first I had to use a battery-operated lantern, but now there is electricity in the room, which means not only is there light but there will also be heat in the winter.
Pork Chop is a dream to milk!
