She finally did it. After 361 days of pregnancy, Edna Mae broke the rules and delivered her cria at 8:45 this evening. In honor of the late hour, we have named her Eve. HER!!! Yes, a girl!
I was watching Steven Colbert and falling asleep, when I decided to go take one last round of the pastures and then go to bed. As soon as I saw Edna, I knew she was in trouble. The head was out and the cria was trying to clear her airways. Both feet were out, but one leg was wrapped over the head. So in I went. I had to break the water, which sprayed all over me and my feet. Straitened out the leg, and then started to pull. It took awhile, but Eve seems healthy and robust, and is now nursing. Yayyyyyyyyyyyy, she really was pregnant. Baby weighs about 16 pounds.
