Obviously, a better solution was needed. After 12 years of trying different methods, I finally came up with a method that is very little hassle, works all the time, and causes no discomfort to the goat. That's not to say she won't fight it at first. You are, after all, restraining her, and no goat will put up with a new restraint without a fuss. But once she's used to it, she'll go on eating her grain and chewing her cud like nothing is going on, and you can, at long last, milk in perfect peace!
