So we had a wintry mix of a little bit of everything today, but mostly sleet. Yuck. Sizzle was keeping off to herself today and refusing to even go stand in the barn. It even took her a few minutes to decide to come in when I called her knowing full well I had feed for her...normally she's all over me when she sees me heading down there with the feed bucket.
She ate her feed, but basically wanted nothing to do with her hay. This is NOT like my big, red pig. All she wanted to do was go back out...again, if there's food in front of her, you couldn't pull her out of there with a tractor and tow rope! But not tonight.
She was really irritable as well, especially around her hoo-ha. Her udder isn't necessarily really bagged up, and she was puckering her back end up so tight it almost disappeared (once I convinced her to unclamp her tail that is) when I tried to check it, and she was just unusually crazy restless.
The baby, "Tumbleweed," was doing barrel rolls in there so I'm sure that wasn't helping anything. I'll be checking on her again here before bed, but I'm not thinking she's really close to foaling...just acting REALLY weird...and being a maiden, I'm not taking any chances!
Here's the pics from tonight, such as they are. It was really dark, so they aren't the best...
