Spring Cleaning

With our first milker due in just 5 short days, I figured it was time to give the milk room a once over. We had some really strong wind recently, so the place was knee deep in dirt. Well, not quite knee deep, but you get the idea. :) I was finally feeling good enough to join the living (I don't recommend getting an ear infection, sinus infection and bronchitis all at once), and Delb was kind enough to help. We busted out the shop vac, and Delb went to work cleaning up all the dirt and dust. It's amazing how much dirt can accumulate in such a short time.

I set to work on the milk machine.

I figured it could use deep thorough once over before we start the next milking season. (I was right by the way =p) Next on our Spring Cleaning agenda will be the buck and doe pens. Our new shelters are due to arrive tomorrow, and we need to get the pens cleaned out in preparation for them. We are getting the Poly Dome round huts. I think the goat will appreciate them much more than the trailer we've been using as temporary shelter.

Cupcake is due on the 14th! Stay tuned to see her babies!
