Back on the milking stand
Since we started milking Pinkie again in May, she had refused to use the milking stand. We therefore milked her in the goat shed. Recently however she climbed onto the milking stand on occasions through the day. I started to feed her there and now she has decided this is the place to be milked. That makes life a great deal easier for us, especially for David who uses the milking machine which needs a bit of gravity to draw off the milk.
She still loves ash leaves so we give her a large pile of them each evening to eat whilst being milked.
