Our beautiful Daisy now lets me rub her neck, really rub it and she doesn't stop eating.
We are close to being able to rub her side. But if I rub her neck then run my hand down her side in one smooth motion to her udder I can touch it briefly before she steps away. No kicking so that is a good thing.
Hoping that she will eventually let me milk her. So far the progress is looking promising :)
