Milking Mares - A wee tip!!

If you have a mare to milk and you've got to the sore cracked hands and getting miserable stage this idea is worth a try!  Take a syringe and cut the end from it, then place the plunger in the wrong way.  Apply to the mares teat and gently pull back the plunger, watch the milk flow into the syringe with great relief!!  If you can get the foal to help, all the better!
