Hi! I am new here and glad to have the opportunity to talk with experienced goat owners. We have 3 Nubians that we've only had two weeks. They are the culls of a good breeder and very nice looking, healthy goats. One of the two that are in milk is giving us fits. We have a milk stand and she puts her foot in the grain bowl, she "sloshes" her feed all over the place with her nose and she is terribly hard to milk due to small teats and orafices so it takes us a while. Seemingly because of length of time it takes she starts dancing around trying to kick us off. This morning she got so carried away she actually fell down. We watched her be milked the day we bought her and my dd actually wanted to rename her Patience--HA! She WAS patient and good natured that day. My question is, is this a permanent situation or can we expect improvement? She really tests my "patience" and I was thinking that maybe there is a way to train her not to try and kick us off. She is a first freshener and her kid was sold at one or two weeks and I don't think she ever nursed it much. She is a beauty really and I hate to lose her, but it's not worth it to me to have to fight everyday for months or years. ?? A friend that had goats said one of theirs acted up until they finally got rid of her. Something else that might be a clue to her personality is she is quite greedy and loud. Thanks in advance!!
