Also gave the guy a goat milking class and he did well.
I INTENDED to show him the "good, the bad and the ugly" of goat milking.
So, I started out with Champagne, who is a perfect lady when it comes to being milked. She trots over, gets in the milking stand and behaves like a perfect angel. As she always does.
So, there's the "good".
|Yes, I am a GOOD goat!|
Next, I get Lily. Lily, who I normally have to drag kicking and literally screaming onto the milking stand and have to have someone help me with so she doesn't kick or lay down, etc. She was going to be the "bad".
Lily trots up to the milking stand, hops up and is absolutely calm throughout the milking! Even with a stranger milking her! WTF!?
|Fooled you! I was an angel in the milking stand!|
So, I go get Molly...the "ugly" on a NORMAL day. She has kicked me in the face, kicked the milk pail over, etc. Usually frickin' close to a rodeo when I milk her.
Nope. She is placid. Does not bat an eyelash, just hops up on the milking stand and cooperates in a manner she has never done.
|Sweet, innocent ME?!? I would NEVER cause a problem!|
ALL the goats acted like perfect angels!
Made me look just a little more of an idiot than usual.
I am thinking about giving goat milking and goat tending lessons. I am going to charge for giving lessons, but not too sure about how much to charge.
I figure I will only have up to 3 students per session. Saturday mornings....about 2 hours long. Each student can leave with a quart of milk that they milked maybe?
My son thinks $30.00 would be fair.
Besides the actual mechanics of milking, I would include :
Basic Hoof Care
Basic Feeding and Care of the goats.
When and How to Wean
What do you think?
Is thirty dollars for a two hour clinic/class fair?
I am horrible about pricing things, I usually under-price. But, I am afraid if I over price, no one will respond.
Help me out, guys...how much do you think I should charge for this!
