I think today might be the day...

That Mandolin Rain will have her calf. She is certainly looking it. I cleaned out her pen to the floor and filled it knee deep with chaff and some straw that I found in the mow. She was eating the bedding as fast as I put it in.

But she looks really close. Her belly has shrunk up in. And her ligaments in her hips and pins are very lose and she is tightly bagged up. Mando is also mooing quite plaintively at her rear end. Which is usually a good sign a youngster is not too far from being on this world. Now to just hope it all goes well!
