Milk goat kicking
I have tried and tried to get her to stop kicking when I milk her. I hobble her, above the hock tightly so it presses the tendon which should in theory stop her from kicking. Nope. She still manages to raise her leg about 4 inches, which is just enough to kick over a bucket. The hobble gets in the way, so when she raises her leg it traps my hand between it and her and hurts like heck. Any ideas on how to get her to stop? The only time she is easy is when she is eating grain, but she eats it so dang fast that I can't get her completely milked out. And I don't want to upset her digestive system by giving her too much. I put large rocks in the bottom of the grain bucket to get it to take her longer but it just isn't long enough. Any thoughts?
