Togg for sale, Weird clumps in milk, etc

Well, just giving a quick update on things. Everyone is doing great.

We do have one goat for sale though - our registered Toggenburg doe. She is very healthy and produces well. She is about 6 years old and just kidded in January, and is a very big doe (popped out big bucklings with no problems). This is my first year milking her, and she has done very well so far. Her udder is very nicely attached and she is easy to milk. We are selling her because she is our only Togg and doesn't fit in with our breeding program (and well, I don't care for her personality either). Email me and we can see what we can work out. SOLD

Something weird did happen last night when I was milking. Doris, who kidded on the 23rd to quads and has been milk *great*, had some very grouse and very weird clumps in one side of her udder. Her udder was not hot and the milk appeared normal (although we just fed it to the cats). I had to pull a couple of them out, since the milk wouldn't come out. They were almost the consistency of cheese. She had no more this morning, so I am assuming just one of those things happened that you can't figure out? Any ideas? Here's a picture (*not for the sensitive!*).

I think that's all for now. Ya'll have a great day!
