Great! Thanks.

Always nice to see and hear more birthing information. I know I start to get nervous every time one of mine goes into heavy labor. It's nice if you can remember to watch a clock, because time seems to freeze....and everything seems to take forever!

Time does seem to stand still! Good to have a clock in the barn.
This yr FF wasbagged for almost a month. One minute normal & the next lying down to push.
Another experienced doe checked out the kidding barn the day before "OK just wanted to make sure my birthing suite is ready" then waddled back out with the rest of the gang.
Had trips the next day outside, my goodness took a good hour total to deliver those babies, taking her sweet time cleaning them off before the next ones.

forgot to add; the video showing the stages of birth, aspecially the doe's rear leg straight out. I never noticed before then but I sure did this time! :thumb:
