    Well, today is Gypsy's due date.
    When I went done to do chores, she was extremely quiet and not happy.
    She was digging a hole in the straw and then stood there and looked at it, and then laid down only to get up again a few minutes later. But her tailhead wasn't arched and I saw no noticable contractions, so I went to church and I just got home *it's five thirty pm*

    I went done to check on her and she is still extremely quiet and uncomfortable, but now she has goo and her tailhead is starting to arch.


    Do you think she is getting ready---or am I just paranoid? She is usually a loud chatterer and licks me like crazy but today she just stood in the corner and looked very uncomfortable and was uncharacteristicly quiet.

    I think tonight yet or tomorrow.

    I had to come up to the house to warm up. :greengrin:
    I was laughing on my way up because just before I left her udder started jumping. Okay, weirdest thing in the world . . . .kind of freaked us both out. :ROFL: .
    So I put my hand a little to the right of the center spot right in front of her udder and got a nice big kick which sent the udder jumping again.
    I think she is having small contractions, so we are in business!

    Re: Possible for Does to start Labor Quietly?

    Definitely some contractions. :)
    She's getting a wide eyed, staring look and actually tried to butt her own side. :roll: nasty individual. Second reason I want to be there at the birth----to make sure she doesn't try to harm her kids because she would definitely be that type.
    Her sides are starting to harden.
    Lot's of goo! Shook her tail and I got splattered. :roll:
    Here's for a long night. :cheers: <---- let's pretend that's pop. :D

    You haven't?
    Ever tried 4 cans of mountain dew in a row?
    My best friend actually fell off her horse, she was having the hysterics from too much sugar. :slapfloor: . Oh, to have an understanding mother! I will probably only beable to make 2 more trips down to the barn before having to stop for the night. :roll:
    Hoepfully she'll have them before midnight.
    No her water didn't break. Just a long string of whitish goo.
