You'll probably wake up in the morning and there will be a li'l calf all curled up by her feet.

That's what happened with me, except that she showed NO signs and I didn't even expect the calf for months! Talk about suprises! I had bought her pregnant and was misinformed on the due date. Good Luck, Debbiesgypsy!

Still no calf. I guess the watched pot never boils.

First calf heifers can be so frustrating! Keeping my fingers crossed for a healthy calf soon!

The Weather Man is calling for rain starting tomorrow for the next 6days. I guess she will have it then. Lol

I think today may be the day. She is walking around with tail straight out. She is showing all the signs. She kind of seems lost. She is walking around with tail up, back hunched, pawing the dirt, doing circles, starts to lay down then right back up. Yep I think its going to happen today. Well back out to watch.
