What are mushy ligaments?

    Both my does are heavy bred now at about 110 days. One had a mucus discharge last week and I was worried her due date/bred date was wrong (both does were bred December 3).

    I have been studying the signs of imminent labor and one thing I've never heard of before is "mushy ligaments." And I've seen these referred to as around the tail head.

    Could I get a "Mushy Ligaments 101 Primer" so I know where to feel exactly and what physical process is taking place in the doe that would cause the ligaments to become mushy?

    Thanks.
