WOOHOO! Happy Goat Day!




I've got 2 more sets of twins, born late last night and then early this morning. All are healthy. I guess I better get after building the goat milking stand.








Here's a closer picture of the new cheese press. it's just 2 layers of 1" pine with the top piece with holes cut in it to help the dowel rods be more stable. The rods are screwed in from underneath and glued in the holes as well. I coated it all, top and bottom with the edges too, with that poly acrylic sealer. So far so good. It's simple but functional. It really doesnt need to be fancy at all, just as long as it holds the weight and stays level for the press time. This one does so it's all good.

  1. Too cute...I love new kids. All of our does are due in March. Can't wait for fresh milk again. I hope to have enough to make cheese this time.

  2. Five babies! How exciting and cute! Can you put the lone baby out with them and mamas? More pictures, please.

    Okay, got the cheese press idea. But, it looks nothing like what you have in the picture with the bucket.
