Not sure about the ligs. I know they are really loose but they have been for a while. They felt looser than usual last night. She is just laying around a lot more than usual. I gave her some tums and Nutri-drench last night. She LOVES Nutri-drench. She also started licking one of her daughters kids. It's not like her to take care of someone else's kids. :hair: :help:
Thanks, I guess I just got worried since she aborted trips last time. It was really hot and humid today so I think she was just annoyed with the heat. I have a fan in the stall for her and she takes advantage of it.
It's entirely possible that she'll hit day 143 and be ready to go...she really doesn't look like she wants to hold onto them any longer than she has too :ROFL: BTW...I have a doe that "likes" to surprise me at least every other kidding...she has never delivered beyond 147 and has had kids at 142 and 144 with no problems....so even if Dawn goes early, I think that once she hits 142 all will fine. :hug:
It's very very hot out today. I hosed her down to cool her off. She hates it, but knows she will be cooler so she just stands there. She is just laying around so I gave her more nutria-drench today. I figure with the litter she is carrying she could use a few extra vitamins.
Has she started to "sit like a dog" yet? She is getting close and the weather making her uncomfortable isn't helping her the poor girl. She'd be on 138 today so she still has a few days to go, I will be truly surprised if she does go beyond 145.
My girls that have carried triplets(never more than that, thank goodness) would start to sit on their butts a week before delivery and then more often throughout the day that they delivered...I think they line up those kids to get them in position that way. It's still funny to see.
She has been sitting like a dog since before she got preggy. Grr! One less thing I can look for. But she does it all the time now versus sometimes. Her udder looks the same! :hair: I really wish it would get bigger. But I think I can finally calm down a bit since she is in the "safe zone" for kidding now. :thumb:
