Down on the Farm


This summer (my month in Boise) I got to go to my brothers house; which I will call a farm. He’s got goats (lots of baby ones too) and chickens and a horse and a dog and all sorts of fun animals. Well, for the first time in my life I got to milk something. I guess you could say it’s on my bucket list to milk a cow or goat. I got to milk one of his goats and it’s not as easy as it looks, it takes some skill and practice. It was also difficult to have C1 attached to me and doing it only one handed.

The goats tried to nibble on C1 and our ties. It would kind of startle me to have a goat try to nibble on my fingers as I was just standing there.

Thank you to my brother and his wife for the yummy lunch and for letting us see your place. You’re a good teacher on milking too!

Oh, and I have to tell you the matching hats that C1 and I are wearing, I made them. The pattern I think is here on the blog, in one of the tabs. It’s made from a t-shirt (9 year old size). I was able to make the two hats out of the one shirt, and not throw out much.
