Oh and here is the little girl that's inside. I will try and get some of the other once her and bubble are settled it
Yeah, thats what I was thinking. The healthy one came out perfectly normal. This one obviously is rotting and dead so I didn't know if it was attached still or if it is something that should be taken out. I will leave it alone and flush her out later. Checking ash now, but she was just chewing cud not too long ago. I think tomorrow would be more likely for her.Aw, she's adorable! Good grief, no, I wouldn't pull anything. You can do a Warm saline uterine flush with a dissolved bolus in it. It will help things along and feel good. Poor Bubble, she had a rough go.
I am goat beginner. When you say the doe stretched, what does it mean ?(headsmash) Gosh darn doe code. I am going INSANE! How is it day 151 and 0 out of 5 goats(and one sheep) have gone or even look very close!
Okay, I did check dates and I got Mary-Lou and Twinkle early. They were bred October 8, putting them (still)at 149. The other girls remain the same. 150/151 days.
Ash was standing totally alone(in the wind) tonight. Udder felt quite a bit bigger. Some discharge. She was stretching quite a bit earlier.
Bessie's udder has gotten even bigger over the last couple hours. A little bigger than a basketball now. Only the bottom feels tight though. Everything else is still pretty loose.
Bubble was also stretching a lot earlier. Udder maybe looked bigger tonight, it was dark though. Ligs are even looser than a little bit ago.
Mary-Lou is the same, ligs are softer.
Twinkle has had pretty loose ligs. Udder looks about the same but she was a fill during kidding girl on her FF.
Lady is on day 139, anime is probably right with her. Both have been filling udders and ligs have been getting loose.
I will do a few night checks but I don't think anyone will be going. Tomorrow does seem promising though! Surely at least one of them has got to pop...Right?(doh)
When they are close to due and are stretching a lot, more than 5 times in a 10 minute period, that usually(not always!) Means they are getting kids into position. If they are arching their back and stretching like a cat, that could be contractions.I am goat beginner. When you say the doe stretched, what does it mean ?
I may try, depends when she starts eating good. She is eating ok, but lows are still in the 20s and I just dont want her to get cold and having no food in her belly doesn't really help.Are you going to put the inside baby back with Bubbles!
I'd love a video of the very pregnant Bessie chasing little Maui that must of been quite a funny sight.
Seriously Ash, let go of those babies already... ugh, you're being silly.
Yeah, that's what I was wondering. I have seen it done the other way around, and on cows, but never sheep. I also don't know if the milk would even be okay as even the milk replacers are pretty different between the 2 and I wouldn't want the kid ill or malnourished as a result.. Never mind anyways! I just went out and there was another lamb! Bigger than the first, another ram. 1 hour, 20 minutes apart.Aw, good momma Bessie! From what I understand Ewe's usually only an count to one Lamb, and have to be taught they have more than one. @fivemoremiles am I wrong here?
Bum lambs can be put on does, but I don't know if it works the other way around. No matter, it's sure is sweet that Bessie wants to.
Maybe you just have to work harder with Bubble? Or have a house goat which is always fun.
Anyway congratulations to you and Bessie on your new ram!
