This morning I tried to get Juju on the stand. I led her to the stand, she started to act up. I held on to her collar and I got up on the stand, I started to pull her up and forward, her legs collapsed and she fell over backwards and ended up on her back, wedged between the stand and the wall. (Not good) She then panicked. I got her out, calmed her down. I fed her grain to her in a pan on the stand. It was an udder failure. (Like my pun?)
Tonight I put the grain on the feed box that's on the stand so she had to get close to the stand. We will do this for a while.
The cheese I made last night did not work out. There might be a reason that cheese cloth is called cheese cloth. I did not have any, I used a tea towel. The whey could not drain with the curds. I tossed that out. I then bought some cheese cloth and I'm trying again. This time it's draining, so that is promising.
The farmers market was slow today. It was real windy too. I got a nice wind burn. I did sell some soap so I did make money but most of the people seemed to be just looking. The Amish ladies did well and so did the guy that makes bread.
