    While milking my new ND goat this evening, she proceeded to reach over and pluck my gold earring out of my ear and chomp on it a few times. I now have one gold earring and a gold nugget. Guess she is trying to give the 'goose that laid the golden egg' a run for her money. The things that fall under the "live and learn" catagory. Never in a million years would I have thought that I needed to take out my earrings to milk a goat! Gonna have to put this piece of advice in my book that I write someday...right after "don't hike farther down into the Grand Canyon than the mules go".

    ...two earrings per ear - one was the set of gold hoops from a dear friend, the other small diamond studs from DH... could've been worse! I'd be [​IMG] if it wasn't so ridiculous!

    Well, gee, thanks for learning this lesson for me. I'll make sure I don't wear earrings to the barn for milking.

    Our Australorp, Olympia, plucked my pearl earring out of my ear when she was a chick... we were very worried, but she's 2 now and it's nowhere to be found...

    While my mom was holding a chicken it pecked a diamond off one of her rings and ate it. [​IMG]
