So sorry you lost her! Anytime they get flat out on their sides, its a major setback from all the work/progress you've done so far. (It's why we 'preach' keeping them propped up.) Sometimes its the 'secondary' issues (not the original problem) is what makes them go downhill fast. I loved her name, how pretty! Its just sad, but I'm glad she isn't suffering anymore. It's a hard decision to make, I know! Janene

My sincere condolences to you all. Time will heal this too. I'm a glass is half full type of person, and when a much loved animals dies, although I do take it very much to heart, I also look at my family and friends that are still with me, and take comfort in that. Once again, I'm so sorry. Husky

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
