I've been reading some forum posts that indicate maidens can have a gestation period of more than 400 days.
Four Hundred Days!
That's more than 13 months.
Frieda and Daisy: Still Pregnant
We are currently at days 370 and 371. Which is just over 3 weeks past due or 12 months and one week of gestation so far. Ugh.
Daisy has given me false hope several times over the last few weeks but Frieda has been pretty much normal.
They're doing all of the normal late-term things... standing over the poop pile with nothing going on, laying with their legs out to the side, cushing on their haunches, hanging out alone or near the gate. Their bellies are very firm and quite round. Today's exam indicates no change. So I have a call into our vet. It's time for a professional opinion regarding our status.
My husband and I returned to Colorado in 2009 to live a simpler life.
Right now the goal of simple means we are busy. Busy fixing up our farm, raising Alpacas and Tibetan Mastiffs, racing wheelchairs, consulting and building Alpacamundo.
This blog is about these and the other things going on in my head. I hope you find it interesting, useful and inspiring.
