Here is my submission for the Animal Care - Sand - Clean Out Four Chicken Next Boxes BB.

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
 - post a picture of you and an empty bucket beneath a cow or goat
 - post a picture of you milking the cow or goat
 - post a picture of you and the bucket full of the appropriate quantity of milk

Our goat Sprinkles gave birth to two girls this spring and she is heavy with milk as she is used to having four kids to feed.  I use a couple of quart jars to milk into as they are easier to hold on to and move out of the way. And yes, I did trim her hooves.

Hey, so I'm just starting my badges, but there's many things I've already done. Do those count? I have pics and videos I've shared in the past iny instagram, is it possible to use a link for that? Or do these have to be things we do now?
Thank you,
Tara

You can get certified for something you've done in the past as long as you have the required photos/video to satisfy the requirements of the BB.  Go for it!
 
What is that? Is that a mongol horde? Can we fend them off with this tiny ad?
