Diva had her lambs early yesterday morning. She is the first to lamb again. She has been first every year for the 5 lambing seasons we have had here, except one where she was 2nd. She is my favorite girl. We had to milk her her first lambing here as she was engorged and so sore she wouldn't let the lambs on. Once I had relieved the pressure I felt her relax and she let them feed. She was the first animal I milked ever, and her lambs were climbing all over me trying to get the milk.
Glad to see them safely arrived and enjoying the sunshine :-)

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.
