A week and one day until Dakota's due date, which means she could go any time! Her ligaments are still strong. They started softening yesterday evening and re-strengthened today....so she is starting prepare. Her udder has a ways to go, but she filled at the last minute last year with a huge one. Definitely expecting triplets if not more. She is absolutely enormous. Bigger than last year with trips. Her rear legs are starting to lose their angulation and her rump is getting steeper. She is usually super flat over her top line all the way to her tail-head. It is very muddy in about half of the pen right now. It has rained non-stop for two weeks. I keep throwing bales of straw out there but it gets worked into the mud within a few days. We are supposed to pick up a truckload of pea gravel tomorrow to put down, and her kidding pen she will go in here soon is nice and dry. I just finished a great second shelter for the pen. I forgot to take pictures, it is so beautiful! I need two doelings from this girl, but we shall see.
