We have been watching Jenis for about 2 months - she looked like she swallowed a football, which they normally do for a couple of days, then the baby repositions and it doesn't look that way anymore. But she has been huge!! I haven't left the house for more than an hour. I have been in need of a haircut for a while now so I decided to make an appointment for Friday afternoon. Wouldn't you know it when I got back home.... there she was!
Thank goodness it was a normal birth!! The placenta was out too, but only half of it. I called the vet to find out what to do, and as luck would have it she was in the area. When she got here she was cleaning under the tail preparing to manually get the rest of it out... yikes, that doesn't sound very good, but the rest came out on its own, WHEW, that was a relief.
Jenis is an excellent first time mom. She just stood still and let Ninah figure out where the milk bar was. They are so unsteady on their feet, they are all over the place, but Jenis was very patient. As you can see in this picture her front legs look a little bit like they are bending the wrong way, so thats something we will be keeping a close eye on.
We have two births left to go - Lady and Annabelle. I don't think either one of them will have it in the next couple of weeks, but you never know.
