I said I'd do the goat milking BB and here I am. I milked Daisy, Lucy and Pearl to get over a quart of milk. I probably could have got it all off of one goat but I'm not that good yet.

Here's my submission for this BB. I milked a goat and am including pictures of:

- me and an empty bucket beneath the goat
- me milking the goat
- me and the bucket full of the appropriate quantity of milk
- bonus pic of the milk in a quart jar to show quantity

Thanks!

I submit for your consideration my first BB: milking my goats.
- picture of empty pail under the goat, ready to milk
- action shot of the milking
- filtering and getting the milk ready for the fridge
- milk from both does combined (just short of a gallon, 7.368 lbs of milk - I keep records).

Okay, going for my first BB. Hoping my YouTube video is good enough evidence? I milk 3 of my goats with a homemade (not by me) milk machine because my hands hurt too badly to do them all by hand. It's kinda long but you can get the idea.
