    I am the walking dead today. Pudding, who is due tomorrow kept screaming into the monitor last night. She has rubbed the hair off her forehead, paced the stall, and hoarse from yelling all night. Never tried to push, I just think the babies have dropped and she's being a diva. :greengrin: As long as I stayed in the barn with her she was quiet. If I left, the screaming begain. :hair: I'm soooooo tired right now and have a feeling this is the process until she kids. :coffee:

    Wow, hope she kids TODAY! I am really sympathetic, last night was my first night since last Saturday without the baby monitor. Dog barks carry for what sounds like miles on my monitor.

    I'm so sorry... is there a place in the barn you can cat nap? Maybe she'd stay quiet then???
    Good luck and hope it's soon!

    I camped out in a lawn chair for a bit, then had to leave for work. I'm waiting for my relief to get here so I can run home and check on her. I work at a equine breeding farm and we are ordering and shipping semen today and I cannot leave until I have backup!!!!

    I hope she goes soon so you can get some sleep! I know how demanding being on a horse farm can be!

    Thanks. The doeling only wants to nurse one side. Poor Pudding. I thought she was going bust this morning. I milked her down and put.the.baby on that side and she nursed, but i think this may be an issue. Any tips?

    Yes... keep doing what you are doing ...if the kid nurses from the same side...and you see this...put it on the other...

    you are doing the right thing ..by milking her out a bit .... and watching the ignored side... As the kid gets older...she will go back and forth.... :wink:

    My eldest son, Logan who is 6, took over the "training Brie to nurse both sides" and did WONDERFUL! He milked the big side down just enough for Brie to latch on and fed the cats the milk. Now all is good. Pudding is a HUGE producer so Brie is doing better at keeping up with the supply. I'M SO PROUD OF LOGAN!!! He took it on himself and did great. :clap:
