We Got Milk!


After just telling Heide in my comments that I don't think Semi-Sweet is going to kid I went down and put her in the milking stand. I sat with my hand on her in a couple of places and waited for a kick. There were a few small jabs and a few rolls but nothing that I could specifically say was a kid kick.
But she does have milk. Don't get too excited because she did last year as well and wasn't pregnant but I do have a plan. I plan on waiting until way after her due date and if no kids come I'm going to start milking her. This should encourage her to milk more.
If I can just get enough every day for my coffee I'll be happy.

Hello, I know you don't know me, but I pop in sometimes to look at your blog. Anyhow, your milking idea will probably work! I did that with a goat that miscarried, and she produced tons of milk. Good luck.

But I do know you Remudamom...you're the lady with the cute pony!
Since her time has come and gone I am going to try and milk her. I'll let you know. She had a full blown false pregnancy...all the symptoms without producing a kid. She even went through all the signs of labor starting. Weird.
