We picked her up Saturday morning and brought her to our little farm to become part of our family. Miss Bella is a Sable dairy goat and is a wonderful milker. I do have experience milking goats but some make it harder than others. So far I haven't had to use the head chute yet. She stands on the milking platform and eats her grain while I squeeze, squirt, squeeze, squirt until all her milk is in my bucket. The first few milkings I gave to the cats and dogs with their feed and froze some of it for soap-making just to be sure there was nothing but our grain and hay in her system. We bought Bella from our neighbors who raise show goats but it never hurts to be safe!
She got to meet the other goats yesterday afternoon. There was a little pushing and chasing. I made sure Nellie and Nanny behaved with those horns.
