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".
