The finished product

Why would someone who raises Cashmere goats need a milking stand?  To give shots for one thing. 🙂  The little dears need to be groomed and to have their hooves trimmed occasionally and since Cashmere goats usually don’t have their horns removed those can be daunting tasks without a tool to immobilize the goat.


We found the plans on Fias Co Farm’s website, went to Lowe’s, purchased about $60 worth of materials and got to work.  We finished in about 9 hours but I’m sure that someone with experience working with wood could knock it out in much less time.  We also did all the sanding by hand.
