This is the story of Gingys babies. Here she is all
clipped and at show before being bred.
This is Gingy 2 weeks before kidding. You can see her udder
is beginning to fill up. Her pin bone is beginning to
soften. She is looking quite plump.
This is Gingy clipped and already for kidding. We clip
the back end and udder for easy clean up after kidding. As
you can see her udder is getting more full. Notice how
her vulva is getting longer and more stretched. Her
pin bone is almost fully soft.
Today is the day for delivery! She has a full udder.
Her pin bone ligaments are fully soft. Her vulva is
large and pink. She is displaying a slight opaque discharge.
Gingy has been at this all morning. She has been
pawing at the ground creating a nest for delivery. She

displaying a white discharge and it is increasing. Notice

Her first kid waters have broke and are ready for delivery.

This is the first kids birth sac expelled. Once all the kids
are born, the placenta will be expelled. This placenta
can be a real long solid string. Do not pull on it, you risk
the chance of tearing it and causing rupture. Make
sure all is expelled within 24 hours. If you do not
see this consult your local Vet for additional help.
