In the 5th picture to last, you will see a little blob on top of the leg that looks a bit like a growth - it's not, it's an ear. From these pictures you can only really see the underneath of the kids as they slide out.
The first thing I felt when I inserted my fingers was a hoof right at the entrance (previously in a big waterbag that I popped)
behind the hoof was a nose. I had to investigate a little further to find the second hoof as it was a bit further back.
I then took the first hoof and stretched it forward and from there helped Whissy to birth it out.
The second kid came with just 1 leg (the one I'm pulling) and the head (I held it behind the ears to help the kid out).
I didnt want to investigate to find the second leg as it was a big kid (9lb14oz) and would have hurt her more to do that.
Great photos. I'd love to get a series of photos of one of our births but I'm so often alone and making sure noses get cleaned and I'm like you, checking to see what's coming to ensure a kid doesn't get close so I tend not to get pics.
Wow! Those pics were very helpful! Thanks so much for sharing them. So, the kid came out even with the one hoof back? I always think that that's not possible but I've yet to pull a kid in that position, just done breech.
Awesome pics!!! Thanks for taking the time to post!! I wish I had someone to take pictures when those kind of things happen or even a by the book birth. I'm always waiting w/ a towel or have my hands checking out the doe so it's great you had someone there.
Those kids look real healthy by the way! Congrats!!!
