    I definitely want to keep her!! But hubby keeps reminding me everyday that I can’t keep them all, I’m really not sure where he got that crazy idea!
    Don’t mind my roughness it was an earlier, very cold morning, and no her ears aren’t folded they were still wet in the pic they are laying perfectly now.

    Stormy is going to be the death of me! Today is day 156 ugh!!! No goo ligaments are loose pretty soft maybe? It’s hard to tell on her she doesn’t want me to touch her. She obviously pregnant and close but this wait!!! She was definitely due 12/26/20 she was preg checked day 32 so I’m pretty positive of her due date. This is my first time kidding her, second pregnancy so maybe she normally goes over? I’m just not sure. I was hoping she would kid while I have my week off from work but we’re getting close to the end of that. I’m WAY too impatient for this!

    I wouldn't even guess that Stormy was imminent based on her udder! Silly doe. I think 156 is the latest any of my Boers & crosses have gone. Maybe I've had a 157 if I dug out my records.

    Best wishes

    Oh...that was.my Chevy last year. She earned her name " low rider". Her teats were 1 inch from the ground. In fact I took her to the vet. He reminded.me 150 is an estimate. Just like humans..some go early...some go late. On day 160..she kidded twin bucklings. So I do understand. :waiting: I am not a patient person. But in some situations...I have no choice..lol lol Just watch her..see how she does...good.luck!

    So here we are day 157. My husband and I were talking last night and I’m not sure what to think. Stormy was preg checked bred at 32 days. But looking back at our notes we did run the buck with some does for two weeks in Sept, these are my does that are due in February. Stormy was an escape artist and wouldn’t stay were she was supposed to. Sooooo maybe she aborted, we didn’t know about it and she’s really due in February?? She was never marked by the buck. She’s not uncomfortable, or anything so just maybe, I guess we wait and see? I’m not sure what else to do...

    Well rough night for me last night. Stormy finally kidded but I would say it was my worst kidding experience to date. She started labor but wasn't progressing, I checked her and she wasn’t Dilating and the water bag was trying to get through. I manually dilated her and gave her about 15 min to work on her own, but nothing. I went it and found legs. Baby was backwards and I could tell it was already dead. I tried for about 30 minutes but the baby was stuck and from what I could tell just wasn’t right. Stormy was tried and sore but I had to get this kid out. I ended up calling the vet. It was down to we try and get this baby out in one piece or caesarean. The vet felt around, baby was basically in a ball, it was backwards, front legs crossed and curled under and head in between the front legs. He tried to pull it out and the back legs broke off but luckily after about 30 min of working slow he was able to get the rest of the baby out in one piece. Baby was big and deformed.

    stormy is very sore this morning but I think she’ll be ok, we’re antibiotics and pain killers, just trying to make her comfortable. The vet didn’t feel any tears inside but wasn’t positive that he didn’t hurt her. Well watch her closely and hope for the best.
