The goat farm might not be a reality. But maybe I'll end up milking a goat or two. Tom and I looked up how to milk a goat, and I think I might be able to do it. Here is what they say I'll need: (thanks wiki-how)
Things You'll Need
Maybe. Just maybe one day I can be a stay-at-home crafter-mom-veggie-gardener-goat-milker.
- One or more female goats (we need one of those....)
- Milking stand
- Grain (or plant leaves,grape if you have any)
- Metal bucket
- Washing water in which the washing cloth has been boiled. Dilute with equal parts cold water before using.You could also use one of the several brand of sanitary wipes.
Funny student saying:
Everyday when my students walk into class they have some sort of a journal or sentences to correct. Today the sentence was about how ice cream was patented by Italo Marchiony in 1903.
Well, the student came in and said, "Did that guy really patent ice cream?"
Me: "yes, I believe he did."
Student: "I love him!"(from the same boy who said he didn't know what he was like on the inside because he's never cut himself open). :)
