Ohhhhhhhhhhh I caught her chewing! (I have a cam on them and while getting coveralls on..) First time since I don't even know.. as soon as I replied, there she went. Wasnt long but it was a bit of chewing. Well, she's stuck with just fodder (hay and alf) till she's doing much better.When you massage her, have her stand with front hooves up a few inches, like on a cinder block. It helps tremendously.
So glad she burped for you!
Watch for cud chewing. I have had the same thing, and now I always check if mine is chewing her cuds. Makes me So happy when she does.
