Maternity Ward Update

With the educated assessment from my vet and what I’ve been witnessing, I jumped the gun so to speak.

Our Spirea, although exhibiting what I took as early labor signs, is not yet in labor. My girl is experiencing end of pregnancy discomfort. Not having experienced this with my previous herd, I immediately took her actions as the start of labor. It was my inexperience with this new breed that I’m learning as I go and my excitement. I couldn’t contain my excitement and brought you all along with me. I’m so sorry. Please contain but please continue to send good thoughts Spirea’s way. This experience just reminds me how much there is still for me to learn about my new herd. All goats are different as are their pregnancy symptoms. I have stopped my 03:00 vigils and with the help of this Baby Monitor, I can see my Spirea anytime during the night as she closes in on her delivery. My apologies again. Thank you for your continued support. I’m so embarrassed πŸ˜”#lappgetter


Sidney just wanted to say hej! She’s starting a shed. No worries. A warm soothing bath is just around the corner in the kitchen.πŸ˜Šβ€οΈπŸ’¦πŸ›
