I milked for the first time this year this morning. What a joy to see and feel such lovely udders! Violet has an amazing first freshening udder, soft, nice medial and large orifices. I didn't milk her out but was quite pleased with how quick it was to get what I wanted. Bonus - she stood like a champion for her first time on the stanchion.
Dassy is a second freshener and I could see and feel the improvement in capacity. She has a lovely udder to milk, large orifices and nice length of teat for hand milking. I also didn't milk her out, but I could feel she had much more to give. Her rear attachments are a little high, and teats could be a little more on center but they were basically plumb despite her being a little on the overfull side.
Once we have some consistently warm days I will give the girls their summer haircuts and take some better pictures. But I couldn't resist taking these this morning on their first overnight fill.
