Free Milk

Well… theoretically it’s all free when it’s your animal, and this is our Helen on the milking stand.  Goats, like all mammals (people included) produce milk after they have given birth.  So.. in order to milk a goat, she needs to have had a kid (goat babies are actually called kids).  The strange thing is, Helen didn’t have a kid this year.  But when she saw the other goats nursing their kids, she filled right up.  We’ve been milking her for a few months now.   Yes, she’s lopsided, but she thanks you very much for not mentioning it.
