    Brought FF to kidding stall, has had a wee bit of white goo the last couple days but not sunken in. Due wed or thurs.
    She hasnt been eating or drinking enough, just kinds of stands around sometimes with head in corner. Does not move around a whole lot.Still chews cud, have not taken temp. She will also lay flat on side for periods of time like she's dead but when I touch her gets up & runs (as far as she can in a stall)
    Have been giving her probious & 8 cc b-comlex orally the last 2 days, but am getting concerned about her, any suggestions you might have are most welcome!

    She sounds like ...she is getting close and contracting...her body is in the process of moving those babies.... to where they are suppose to be ....to the birthing canal.....this can take a while........some can take all day...as others.... take a short while....but.... she needs to be watched closely now... as it can be at anytime....... They don't eat much... if anything at this time... All normal in the process of having those babies...and they will be here ....before you know it.... :hi5: Happy kidding.... :hug:
