Long night! Peony went into labor technically around 3:45 pm. Spent all evening with a couple of contractions, then rest like nothing happened. Never seen that before. We finally went to bed with the baby monitor; at 1:00 I couldn't stand it anymore and went back to the barn where I decided it wat time to intervene. Got lubed up and went in; my husband heard it on the monitor and came to hold her. It was a difficult situation as I couldn't find any legs in there! Had to keep turning baby around and realized I would probably lose it, but it had to come out. Eventually I found a leg and with a little pushing from mama, out came a kid...alive! I was no sooner cleaning her airways when out comes another. We got them toweled and our Irish Setter went to work cleaning them up, both are doelings! Suddenly I look up and Peony is at it again...a third girl! They are all beautiful, but I think the first one was pretty traumatized. She's on the weak side and I'm having trouble getting much colostrum into her...only a few swallows. If she doesn't get more in the next couple hours I'll have to tube her.
