    Our poor Mary's due date is March 5th. She's having an awful time being able to lie down and get comfortable. Today, this is what she came up with as an alternative to having to get all the way down on the ground..........


    Poor girl! If you can't tell by the pic, our hay rack is set up in the middle of a tractor tire. She props the front end up on the tire so she doesn't have to go all the way to the ground. Watching her actually go all the way to the ground is rather painful.....

    Another of those backside shots we'd all be proud to have posted!!!


    Hopefully not too much longer!!!!!

    Quote:Yes, I thought so too!! I told hubby that she looks very proud of herself for thinking this up....she can rest, and grab a bite of hay every now and then.

    She looks like my Ginger!!! Poor thing would lay down on her side and she was huge!!!

    BTW, I don't think she will be delivering for at least a week because her udder isn't really round and tight, like a basketball.
