Re: Dawn is on day 135

What about her ligs? I think I have heard of minis surviving at day 135 not positive though. If she were to deliver early, give those kids TINY bits of colostrum really often and keep them indoors.

Re: Dawn is on day 135

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:

My pygmy is a tail wagger and always talks to her belly since her first pregnancy! It is hilarious. She lost her buckling when he was 1 month, and it has killed her.

My other pygmy always has a her tail to the side and hunched up since the day that I got her. She is due in a week - but she is doing / acting the same from when she was not pregnant.

Dawn just wants you to wait and be sleepless for the next 2 weeks!

I don't worry about tail wagging in terms of kidding. Doesn't really mean anything usually unless theirs a piece of straw or something on their rear or udder. Then they dance trying to get it off.

She looks good! Babies on their way. I think she'll go on 143-144.

Thanks, I guess I just got worried since she aborted trips last time. :oops: 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.

Just an update on Dawn:

Lots of getting up and down today. It's very hot and there are lots of flys, so that could be the reason. I feel so bad for her. I wish she would just pop!

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.

Re: Dawn is on day 141(picture added)

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:
