We're expecting our first kid(s) any day. I was planning to leave the kid(s) on part time and milk once a day. When I read about people doing this, they seperate at night. would it be possible to reverse that? I'm asking because the way my barn is set up it would be easy to pen the doe in with her kid(s) at night and leave her with access to shelter, food, water, pasture and her friend during the day. If she spends the days with the kid(s) they will have to be all penned in the barn all the time (no pasture for mom) or all loose with the other goat during the day. And it won't bother anybody if the goats complain during the day, but at night it will be a pain. Also when you do this, when does the doe get milked in relation to being put with the kid? Milk her first and leave some for the kid then put them together? Also, if dd wants to bottle feed once a day will that work? could we milk out, bottle feed, and then put them together?
