🐐 Goat-milking photos to go

Two photos: the one on the left is of a goat being milked and the one on the right is of a woman holding a container with some milk.

👋 Shafaq here! On Saturday, I was invited to milk a goat at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Context: I went head-to-head with other local media folks to see who could get the most goat milk in 30 seconds.

  • We had a quick 10-second warmup before diving into the deep end.

My experience: I may not have clinched first place with my laughable amount of goat milk, but I did walk away with a new skill and a goat friend.

  • And of course, I had pails of fun.
