I have started milking Mama Goat! YIPPPPEEEEE!
Laugh if you will, but I am so EXCITED. Kela and I were able to get the front pen cleaned out a couple days ago, and so we had a place to put the babies separate from their Mama :)
So I milked mama two mornings in a row! WOOT!
I only got about a half a cup both times, but I think that is rather impressive considering the following facts:
1. I have never milked anything in my life, unless you want me to count MYSELF. (bahahaha, sorry. that totally cracks me up, every time.)
2. I have no stanchion. And Mama KNOWS that I have never milked anything in my life! LOL
3. I am SO CLUMSY! I have spilled about half the milk out both mornings just from clumsiness on my part, not counting orneriness on Mama's part ;)
So, this morning I had one day old, chilled, perfect, raw goat's milk on my cereal, and guess what? It was DELICIOUS. Very sweet, and the after taste I was expecting just never even showed up! :D (There was a *slight* after taste, but it was SO slight I almost missed it ;))
And I have another half cup of it for tomorrow's cereal! WOOT!
Just call me Farmer Lawanda! ;)
Or just Lawanda. Either one. :-p
Because like I said on FB, I don't guess I quite qualify for exact farmership, having gone on a Hot n Ready Pizza run for lunch today ;) hehe
