So this morning, I was trying to lead Glory Bee from the milk stand pen, where she spent the night, back to the goat yard for the day, and she attempted to rip my arm off running away from me, so I dropped the lead to save myself. And she disappeared for 30 minutes whilst we conducted the multiple steps listed here for capturing the wild calf. Again.
She’s back in the goat yard now. (Still dragging the lead around with her, which we haven’t gotten close enough to take off yet.)
I don’t think continuing to take her back and forth between the goat yard and the milk stand pen is going to work. She’s too strong for me to handle. I’m contemplating cutting her down to nursing BP once a day, taking the morning milking all to myself, and letting Glory Bee nurse in the evenings only. And bringing BP to her in the goat yard instead of the other way around.
Not sure how well that will work due to not sure how well BP will cooperate on a daily basis.
But I know I can’t keep taking Glory Bee back and forth.
Any suggestions out there?
P.S. DON’T MISS tomorrow here. There are two giveaways coming. One is from New England Cheesemaking, and it’s the biggest cheesemaking giveaway yet. And the other is SO BIG, it’s a secret and I can’t even tell you about it till tomorrow. You just have to BE HERE!!!
