    Well after many long months of waiting, here we are! You might remember I bought Hope last May as a probably pregnant doe, and was really excited. It turned out she wasn't pregnant after all, so I brought home Buckly and they hit it off right away. :greengrin:

    Now we're down to the wire! Poor girl is so huge!

    This is her second or third freshening. Most likely third, she had at least twins last time, don't know for sure but I know it was more than one.

    Please excuse the mess! I shaved her backside today and plus it's been raining on and off. Ick.

    Pictures just don't show how FAT she is!! Let's hear it, what do you think? How many and when? :coffee2:

    Today, day 141!

    When I went out this evening, she is having some discharge, and her tailhead is also sinking. I could nearly put my fingers around the tail head.

    She still has some ligaments, they have been softer for some time but they are there. Udder keeps growing but not tight yet.

    Poor girl! She was grunting and groaning as she laid down and looks just miserable. :love:

    Edited: I wrote "weekend" instead of "evening." Like that made any sense at all! See, already losing my mind!

    Here we go.

    Soft ligs, but not gone. Lots of grunting and moaning, and constant trying to pester me and groom me. Wants to be right up my butt when I'm in the pen.

    Re: Hope - Day 145 - Not much change

    udder certainly has filled more. She is looking closer.
    feeling for ligs - push more down then "around" the tail. You will get a more accurate feel for the ligaments that way

    Re: Hope - Day 145 - Not much change

    Oh I know. That picture was just showing how much the tail head is loose. The ligs are more like pencils (or were) and more to the sides, correct? They're so soft now, barely able to feel them.

    Re: Hope - Day 145 - Not much change

    oh ok, yes you have it right.

    It is just a misconception that ligaments are gone when you can feel around the tail -- wanted to make sure that you weren't confused by that.

    So today we had a bit of white discharge, but not much else.

    Seeing as tomorrow it's supposed to rain, its the last day of our cold front, and I'll be gone for part of the day, she's sure to have them! :hair:

    Re: Hope - Day 146 - Some white discharge

    Maybe.. I hope so for you!!! I have one on day 152 and still going and ligs are still faintly hanging in there!!!!!! ARGHHHHHH! Udder has filled and everything, but she's protesting :( It's COLDDDDDD here, and the weather keeps shifting. We were supposed to have a storm yesterday, but it skipped by us, so I'm thinking she's waiting for storm clouds... haha

    I hope Hope gives you some babies soooooooon!
