When I went out to take care of the goats this morning, my younger sister came out with me and went into the goat pen before me, I was a little behind her because I was taking pictures of the winter wonderland the woods had turned into (pictures tomorrow). She opened the door up and said, "Wendy's laying down." To which I responded with, "What kind of laying down?" "Uh, the one where you aren't standing on your legs?" Okay, then... I got in there and she was laying down. Wait, I already said that, didn't I? She had a head and two feet sticking out of her girly parts. The kid was obviously dead, but I don't think it was still born. I pulled on the kids legs one at a time with her contractions and got the kid out. It was huge, like, really, huge. It was a boy, that had Wendy's coloring and pygmy ears, we have never had a boy with pygmy ears before. I think that the kid was to big for Wendy to pop out by herself. As soon as I got the kid out, the placenta fell out after him, like it was waiting for it's turn and it had been waiting for a while. Wendy is doing fine and she isn't to sad. I don't think that she isn't at all, but she doesn't seem to be depressed. She had some orange peels and water and the last time I checked on her, she was cuddled up with Silver.
