Over Christmas break, I began building a pair of milking stands for our (hopefully) newly bred goats. Due to weather and general busyness of the holiday season, I was able to get only one stand completed. Over the extended MLK weekend, I was able to finish up the second one. This was a fun DIY project — I always enjoy building things with my own hands — and I used these excellent plans from Fias Co Farm. I apologize that the pictures are a bit blurry, but the combination of a 5 mega-pixel camera, cold air, and backlighting make for somewhat sub-optimal photos. We haven’t had a chance to test the stands out with actual goats yet, but we’re hoping they’ll work well once kidding season gets here.
