Looks like she almost doesn't fit! Hope she doesn't fall off the back end.

Yay! Looks great! You don't even need a milking stool; those are for cows anyway. Just sit on the edge of the stand. :) Can Bonita get her head all the way down to the bottom of the bucket?

She looks muy bonita in there! And pretty dang happy, too. Are you destined to be a shepherd of goats, too, I wonder?

Bonita looks like she is wondering what you are doing over THERE with the magic box when she is over HERE waiting to be milked. :)

She is a fine looking goat. A great partner, twice daily and 7 days a week until she goes dry. Then "rest."

Bonita is EXTRA large for an Alpine, so she is right to the back of it, but she jumped right up for her grain, she is used to milking stands!

and I could sit right there off the ground and milk her, thank you CJ! it is wonderful!

Wow, CJ, I think that is so cool that you came up with that idea and then built it! And your willingness to barter with it for the Antlerstock ticket with Jenna gives me hope for humanity. Thanks!
