Ah! Brings back memories of my beginnings. From the floor to the wooden spool and now this.....
If you have a goat or two I believe one can get buy but with so many this is so much easier or it will be when I can convince my girls they want to go in.
Welcome Goatsmilk2 what is it that you need to know? PM me for measurements and I'll do the best I can, after all we're just winging it here.
Still have lots of work to do on it but I figured I'd keep you all updated.
The arrow shows the pipe my hubby welded in to narrow up the opening to keep the goat in.
Haven't tried to get my billy up there yet. I'm still strugling with these gals.
The two does on the left are my dry does. They wanted to go up on the stand so I figured no time like the present to learn.
I'll be glad when I can control when they get on the stand.
please excuse the mess. I was trying to store some extra bales. Guess they found them.
Still milking by hand as you can see the milker off to the left well it's still not hooked up yet. Hubby asked me to bring it out as he has yet another idea. Stay tooned for more updates.
