Maybelle is wonderfully easy going with us around her babe. Even when she is feeling a bit nervous, she quickly is reassured and calmed. I’m hoping that when we begin to milk her on July 5th she will handle the separation well. Milking should be started at 4-7 days postpartum and we’re extending that a bit so that our holiday plans aren’t interrupted. (Who am I kidding?? We are sick every year around the 4th. We aren’t going anywhere.)
We’ve already begun the process of halter breaking him. He cares little for it, but doesn’t put up too much of a fuss. When he does, he’ll thrash his head around, lose balance, and fall flat on his side to the ground. It’s quite comical.
To us at least. Maybelle seems to be anything but entertained.
