It’s Not Fatal

21 Jul

It’s called weaning.  It isn’t going to kill them, but you’d swear these two think they are going to die if Perdita doesn’t get to nurse her maa.

I’ve had to get way more creative in hobbling the fence than I ever have before.

They are relentless.

Showing me where I need to hobble more twine on there.

But I want the milk.

I’ve just started making a year’s worth of mozzarella cheese, and Astra actually has the most milk of all the girls I’m currently milking.  At least when I can get it.
