Back on the ranch we separated out Mame's and Tsunami's boys for the first time last night and milked their dam's this morning. Mame' gave about 3lbs and that was without me bumping her udder or in anyway trying to milk her out. (Her boys needed breakfast.) Tsunami was not at all happy about being milked and she has a wicked KICK! Lots of spilled milk, but at least no tears on my part - since I was more or less anticipating a few mornings of goat rodeo before she settles into the new routine.
Finally, today is day 142 for Rita and of course we are keeping a close eye on her and hoping that Mojo will continue his doe streak with her. So far he this year he has produced 5 doe kids and 2 bucks.
