There are three of us goats being milked currently. Cookie is first in the line-up and produces about 1.5 quarts of milk. The milk machine barely gets warmed up by the time she is done.

I am second in line and I produce a respectable 1/2 gallon of milk per milking. My udder is quite lovely but the farmer curses it because my teats point forward thus forcing the milk machine tubing to be twisted around in order to get the sucker cups on my teats. I reward the farmer's hard work at situating the machine by stepping on the tubing or flicking the sucker cups off with my back foot in mid-milking.

Gloria is last but definitely not least. She produces about 1 gallon per milking with her huge udder. Most people have to comment on the size of her udder when they see it. The best comment was when the farmer's neighbor said that Gloria's udder was bigger than her 20 year old daughter's butt. I guess that is a big udder (or a small butt?).
