Well, Ellie made it through another night with no little bundle of joy arriving. I am keeping vigil. I just saw her lying in the pasture again so down I went to find her very uncomfortable. She was making little sounds and breathing heavily. The pressure from what looked like two hooves against her soft tissues was evident from the size of the hoof “lumps”. She has rolled several times trying to move things into a comfortable position I suspect. She let me sit down on the ground with her and rub her belly, head and back. She got up and stood with her head leaned against me as I sat on an upside down bucket. Her breathing was considerably better on her feet. It is evident that she is very tired but standing feels better than lying down. At one point, she moved away but then pivoted on her hind feet in a complete circle to come back to put her head against me. How I wish I could help her but we just have to wait for that baby to decide it is time. I finally checked her over for one last time and headed back to the house. She was lying back down before I got back up to the house so maybe today really will be the day. The photo is another “phone picture” which only shows 1/2 of that giant belly. Doesn’t that just make you squirm??? I”ll let you know how things go the rest of today…………..
