Milking the goat
The morning routine now is have breakfast, quickly tidy up the kitchen, fill one bucket with warm soapy water, take empty milk bucket, get some goat food and go and let Elisabet out of the pen. This morning she went straight onto the stand. Milking doesn't take that long and we seem to be developing an understanding that she doesn't kick the bucket. This morning got two litres of milk. Then I let the little kids back out to their mother.
I was worried about how I would get the kids up to their shed of an evening as they get bigger so have taught them to walk on a lead, its very funny. will try and get a picture tomorrow.
I was disappointed with my first lot of yogurt, it tastes fine but is very runny. I am trying to skim the cream off the next lot of milk before I make the yogurt as have read that skim milk makes thicker yogurt, which is a bit counter intuitive but I'll give it a go.
I've got loads of milk in the fridge so will try a soft cheese today as well.
