Last week we also had the pleasure of Maddy, a 6th form work experience student who is working throughout her summer holidays to make sure that she has plenty of experience before applying to Uni to study veterinary science. She helped us out with milking and feeding and also spent some time learning to trim feet .. very useful she was too!
Husky and Ginger certainly took a shine to her ..
She has promised to come back and visit us at kidding time next year.
And while Maddy was here, she was thrilled to see exactly how Ginger escapes from her pen. Here she comes - through the gate with a last little wiggle to get that udder through!
Husky, on the other hand, seems keen to get IN with the milkers, rather than OUT .. This pic was taken from the milking parlour this evening. Look at the centre of the photo ...
Yes indeed ... Valerie's little man seems to have taken a shine to young Husky and the two of them can be seen playing together in the field. Wonder if Val wants to adopt her?!
