Matilda is due on Jan. 29. I thought it'd be good to keep a thread on her.

Today I though I saw some minor contractions but then they stopped. She's very puffy in the back and her udder is tight.





I think she'll go tomorrow but she is very stubborn.

I like her color! Reminds me of one of those "long horned cattle" :p Her udder is filling nicely, but it WILL get bigger...I was amazed at how fast Binky filled hers! Watch for her hind legs to "straighten" and look like she has "peg legs"...besides the ligs disappearing. If you need a reference, Binkys udder pics in the thread that shows her twins has a good "peg leg" view.....believe me , if you know your Matilda you'll know when she's ready!
BTW...I'll put in a vote for twin doelings!! :wink:

Here is her udder this morning! I'm going to stay home because she was out sitting in the rain when I went out there. Very unusual for her. She hate rain and she's usually the first in the barn. Also you can see some white on her. I'm hoping she has triplet. She's big enough!

She could be awhile, when I noticed that Binky was looking like Matilda does now it was around 11 that morning and she delivered Aggie and Nugget 12 hours later. She could go in a few hours or wait til late tonight. Only they are the ones that know when.!LOL... :)

Any moment now. She's in her own stall and the rain is coming down! She's getting up and down and her udder makes it hard for her to sit down. She's streching A LOT!! She's really uncomfortable. Im home alone right now but I'm not to worried. I know I can help her if she needs it, but just pray everything goes okay for me. Thank you!

first off you just need to go into photobucket and click "edit" and then "rotate" :D

Sounds very close!!!

If you need anything we are hear for you. And if you are concerned in away take Teresa up on her offer I know that talking to someone is easier then typing.

Thanks.

Matilda kidded with a boy and a girl!! They are just as cute as can be. Just after I finished typing my last post a got a snack and was on the phone with a friend walking down to the barn. I opened it up and saw the kids and said "Gotta go bye!" Matilda was sitting on the little boy's leg and she was sitting there drinking her own milk. I had to get her to stand up to free the boy. He couldn't walk very well at all so I brought him up to the house and my dog dried him off and I helped him stand. I noticed he was dragging his back hoof. It's not on backwards or anything but he seems to struggle with it. I'm not to worried since he's been curled up for the past 5 months. I'm praying he grows out of it! It took hima while to walk, but he's a pro now! He also took the LONGEST time to find a teat! Matilda's udderis so low and he was looking for it higher. He wouldn't open his mouth whenever I guided his mouth to it. I milkedMatilda out some and just as I was turning around to give him some he had just latched on. All is well now. Ill post pictures later I'm so tired right now. 5 kids in 2 days!!
