OK I really could use some encouragement. I milked my Nigerian Dwarfs today and one of them kicked at me so hard, her hind legs went above her head and then landed behind a wall panel between studs and I had to wrestle those hind hooves back down to safety. I understand being new and I think she is more aggravated at having a newbie on her, but I sat under two does for a good half an hour and got half the milk, if even than the lady I bought them from. I'm a bit discouraged and I don't want to hurt them, but boy is this just a tough skill or what? How long did it take you to get the feel for milking? I'm afraid I'm going to hurt them by not milking enough or by milking poorly. Of course, I'm right now nursing my own baby and maybe seeing those full utters gives me a bit of the heebee jeebees. Any hope for me?
