When I got up at 3am to check Drama Queen’s progress, the two ligaments to either side of her tail had gone completely mushy, just as Goat Health Care said they would…this usually means delivery is coming in a matter of hours (up to 24).

There was no vaginal discharge yet, so I went back and grabbed a few more hours of sleep. Now it’s a little after 9am and Drama is showing more signs of labor; pacing around, talking more than usual, and pawing at the bedding.

She’s still interested in alfalfa and warm water with apple cider vinegar (always a big hit in cool weather), and more interested in petting and scritching than usual.

Teri and I will be taking turns checking on her, and tonight we’ll probably be posting photos of goat babies!
