    I'm sure she is going to be so happy to get those babies out. I've never seen her so huge. This was them both at about 6 am. They are now getting more serious. It's a slow labor with inducing but they should go within the next 12 hrs. 20201020_062832.jpg

    Thank you! No kids yet but she's definitely getting more serious. Visible contractions for sure. I did do a cervical check on her. No baby in the canal yet

    Didn't finish that post lol. She is much looser in there than before so I assume she will go within the next 6 hrs. Her ligaments are gone

    Lucy is all over me now which is how she gets when she is close. Her udder has gotten huge. Twice the size it was last year with her single doeling. Her ligaments have softened significantly and her vulva is much more relaxed though I did not check for dilation on her.

    Checked dilation on both. Magic is almost fully dilated but Don't feel a baby or a bubble on the other side. Her contractions are definitely getting stronger. I'm thinking she's trying to move a baby into place.

    Lucy is about 2 fingers dilated and a believe i felt a bubble on the other side so that is a relief! She is also having contractions but not has strong.

    They are almost 30 hrs post Dex and Lute shots. Every doe I have induced has gone at about 33-36 hrs post shots.

    Ok, now I'm thinking Lucy will go first. She is talking a lot and having some pretty good contractions! Ligaments are completely gone now.
    Udder is even more full.

    Lucy is getting down to business. Definitely more dilated.

    While I was out there Electro happened to wonder over to the fence and I noticed what looked like blood by his mouth. So, I caught him and took a look. He definitely had an abscess that blew out. I didn't notice it before because it is right near his mouth where his beard starts to get super thick. And now I'm freaking out! This isn't a typical CL location right? The exudate was somewhat thick but looked pink from blood. No strong smell. Not a big abscess. Like the size of the tip of my thumb. I'm definitely sending it off for testing but it's too late to save anyone from exposure to whatever it is. No one else has had abcesses and they have all tested negative for CL.

    Well, I guess Lucy did have an abscess in a similar location as him over a year ago but I lanced it and got a foxtail out of it.

    Ouch! It’s always a possibility, but I highly doubt it. Sending it in for testing is a smart move to be on the safe side.

    Yay! Cannot wait to see what you get. I’m working midnight shift, so I’ll be here for your updates lol.

    Lucy just had this half grown single buckling. Had to help her but she did well.
