Hey, just got my first dairy goat, a Nubian and a true love but.... She has never been milked, which wasn't quite what I expected. Needless to say we are both green and frustrated. She has had a set of twins but since bringing her home, and only one of her babies, she has decided to wean her immediately. I am trying to milk her morning and night to keep her in milk but again, frustration. She is extremely skinny and I am giving her all she wants in grass, hay and goat chow. She is missing her baby and still getting over a new move. My question is two fold, first does it make more sense to dry her off and work with her until next go around or should I keep this up and second, are goat hobbles going to remedy the kicking, bucking and complete unpleasantness of learning to milk or are there any secrets. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
