Hi, I have a donkey that is in the last month of her pregnancy. I am only 16 and this is my first experience with foaling, I didn't know she was pregnant when I first got her. Anyway, this morning when I went out to do chores I noticed that she was laying down. I rarely see her laying and when I do she jumps up as soon as she sees me. Today however, she waited until I had the gate open, then she got up rather slowly. After I took her out I noticed that her hips are a lot more prominet all of a sudden and she seems skinnier. I know that these are usually signs of dropping, but she does not have that V-shape to her belly and her vulva is still a fleshy pink. I at first worried that something had happened and she no longer had a live foal, but when I touch her belly I can feel small movements. She isn't appreciating me touching her stomach today or really petting her anywhere but on her head and face, which is odd, she loves a good rub down. I'm hoping that you could help me out with this, and let me know if the more prominent hips is a bad thing. These physical changes have occured since yesterday evening, so it is not that she hasn't been eating that she looks skinnier, any help would be greatly appreciated!!
