yikes! so i got my goat - a lovely saanen named Evita who we've enjoyed very much. its the best thing we've done for our small farm. everything was going great - wonderful milk, easy temperament.. perfect. until a couple nights ago. now when we are up on the milk stand she is all hopping around. she hadnt done this before so i'm worried if something is wrong? she isnt sick, not visible injuries, i'm not doing anything different, i've made sure its very quiet.. but now she is all hoping around and she even put her foot into the (full) milk bucket! oh no! well the hens got the bucket. the previous owner had a 'real' stanchion and i just use a small platform and have her tethered to the side of the barn wall. at first i gave her both grain (16%sweet feed from TSC) and hay while we were milking. but she seemed to be throwing the hay around and going after that one small leaf way over there. so i went to just grain. which helped a bit but i dont know if i'm taking too long or if maybe she figured out she could dance around? or did i hurt/scare/whatever her? any thoughts? Chirpy are you out there????
