She isn’t going to have a baby until November. Just her way of getting ready I guess. Sorry I didn’t update sooner.

Well, I can honestly say I have never seen that kind of discharge, several times, from one that is still several months off. So are they both due late this fall???? Well, the good thing at least you know for sure....

She has about 10 weeks to go, so I guess it’s not too far away. They are due around the 5th to Thanksgiving. I will update photos when they come, I appreciate all of the advice and time given to help.

Cooler weather is easier on them to calve.... they will clean afterbirth better in cooler weather. See the most retained placenta's in hot summer weather both on the dairy and in our beef cattle... and we don't have many. Plus she will not feel so miserable and be more inclined to want the calf... seems like the heat affects them like us and they just have less "umph"....
Practice run.......:lol::gig:plbb You will be all ready by November.....

That’s understandable I already feel bad for them, can’t imagine that belly being any bigger lol. Yes I can sleep now! Yay, thank you again for all of your time. I will check back in when the time comes.
