This is our first year kidding (No I'm not kidding). Annabelle, our LaMancha, kidded while we were at church, (she did not look like she was going to any time too soon....) we returned home on Mother's Day to a damp buckling and happy mamma. On the other hand ARGG! We did not get to see how it's done! While Annabelle was fast, Ivy, is in slow motion. Ivy had a long string of goop on Saturday. Sunday (Father's Day), she was having spasms of hard contractions and was up-down, up-down by Monday morning. When I checked on her Monday morning, she had two nests, up-down, up-down, pawing, and just general agitation. Tuesday, she stoped laying down by what appears to be general discomfort with the position. She has not been known to have layed down in over 48 hours in spite of close observation. She has had spasms of severe contractions that come and go (nothing consistent) since Sunday. She has small contractions fairly regularly. Other then not having consistent hard contractions, she has not dilated much. It seems that her kid/kids is are in the bc as we have not felt them since Tuesday night. When she layed down or stood on the barn door, her rear end pooched out:scratch::help:. Any thoughts.....this is Thursday afternoon..... Will post pics after I get back from the barn.
