Milk Stanchion (stand)

I completed the milk stanchion yesterday which is the milking stand where I'll milk.
Here is what one typically looks like but I fashioned one out of the huge shelving that was along one side of the barn. Basically I just needed to build the head pieces and feed area. The bowl is for feeding them their grain while they are milked. The doors in the background will not be there come Saturday.
I love it!!! It will work perfectly.

I changed the day we get the goats to Saturday. I was suppose to get them Friday evening but begged for one more day. At 6PM Saturday I am to be in Ollala to milk my goat for the first time(so I can get some pointers if need be.) and then bring her home.
