Busy day getting my barn organized!

Today has been wet and just plain dreary, so it was a perfect time to get some inside-the-barn work done!  I just felt I needed to get my "milk parlor" organized and clean for the summer.  Mapping it out and rearranging things was the hardest part, as my sister had different ideas =)
Me in front of the milk stand...done cleaning & organizing!
Our breeding season has gone sour, as we found out that NONE of the does we bred back in the winter are pregnant, and the 2 does that did kid were already bred when we bought them.  I was counting on the abundance of milk in the summer to use for soap making, fudge and cheese...but God had other plans for us.  Right now and for the next 6 or more months, we'll only have 3 goats in milk.  Anyway, guess we'll wait to breed the does until the bucks come back into rut.

Anyway, that's all for today.  Thanks for reading!
