Time to do the milkin
Say the title like you are the Swedish chef on the Muppets, that makes it seem a little more exciting. Now having goats is fun, but it is a lot work and some days I just need a little boost to get out there and milk the goats when I would rather sit in the house with my butt planted in a chair. On those days I say to Spark "time to do the milkin" and he replies, "yah, time to do the milkin" and we go out with a new attitude. Dancer, for some reason, always likes to go out in the barn. She is a country girl through and through. Here Dancer and the Dad are bring in one of the goats to milk. They all know their names very well. We yell out the name of the goat that is up next for milking and they make their way to the front of the gate, we open it and they walk in for their turn. Of course, being goats they don't always do what they suppose to do but for the most part it is quite orderly.
