We're in Nebraska this week on a ranch. There are PLENTY of opportunities to help out. While many are repeated daily, I'll detail them one at a time over the next few days.
Milk the goats.
Nearly an hour. (We're not particularly proficient.)
Our hostess has a host of medical problems, not the least of those which cause her constant back pain. She does a lot of chores every day, and milking isn't exactly spine-friendly. The girls enjoy this chore, and we all benefit from the product.
Absolutely! The girls love the chore, and our hostess is always amused at how quickly our family jumps in to help with what has become mundane to her. Plus, there's really nothing like fresh goat's milk. (If you've had goat's milk from the store, don't give up! There IS better milk out there! Find your local goat herd and give it a try!)
