This Nubian cross (who is a big girl, weight taped to 195 or more pounds) won't get up on milkstand for us. She got up fine before her pregnancy, every day to eat her grain all the way up to the day she kidded. Kidded last Saturday and the twins are still on mom. We have been taking her in once a day to milk out one side because the twins aren't nursing on one side. She absolutely refuses to get on the stand. I am a small woman and I have pulled, my kids have pushed from behind and no luck. She also has to be hobbled and last night jumped and stuck both hind feet in the milk pail :nooo This is her second freshening and per her last owner (my daughters 4H leader) she had no problems with her. Would it be better if we took the babies off of her? She just stands and stares at the door to the milk room talking to her babies. She is top goat in our herd and I feel like this is a definite stand off but I am not sure how to win! This may be the last Nubian I own. She is worse than my donkeys!
