    she probably needs calcium -- get a calcium drench or CMPK gel and give her 20-30ccs of either

    OOPS, I did not read the first page where she has dropped the placenta. That is great.

    Are you bottle feeding the babies? And by the way what sweet babies you have there. :lovey:

    Have you been able to give her Molasses water?

    yes she seems fine today - although i noticed she is only eating when i am sitting in the barn with her. Of course hindsight is.... but now that i read about birthing - everything says in bold letters - DO NOT PULL ON THE AFTERBIRTH. How i missed that i'll never forgive myself for. My vet even said when i only saw one hoof i should not have pushed it in and straigtened the other one to get them both at the same time. But i just don't know. I did not hav to go in far. I just used a couple of fingers felt the other foot and once i pulled it straight the buck popped right out -

    Yes take her temp... that is important...

    Did your vet say.. to start her on antibiotics?.....if she has some placenta still in there...it will have to dissolve on it's own... but in the meantime ...will start to go rotten..... in which .......infection can occur..... So if she loses her appetite and has a temp start her on antibiotics..... :hug:
