You're welcome! I feel so fortunate to have experienced the birth with my Ma. I hope you do as well with Newton. Actually she did poop and pee more often, everyday there was a build up of the big event. I knew when the real thing started, it was a lot of signs at once.
Hi newton! Just thinking of all the other momma goats so close to bringing us new kids, I wanted to share a bit of what happened with us on Sunday. The day before Ma finally hatched her babies, I saw her contractions coming on and stopping. It was making her hoohoo tighten and relax, like she...
