Trixie Update

We have made it to the point where if I induce today, Trixie should deliver at 140 days. That's within the realm of viability for the kids and is a bit of a relief. 

Her ketones are down to trace levels, but she's still not eating much, so I am keeping her on the propylene glycol.

Her belly dropped overnight and her ligaments are softening. I want to get the Dex in her to help with fetal development, but want her to get her as close as I can to her due date. I felt movement this morning, so that's a good sign!


  1. You are such a good goat Mama. Your critters are lucky to live on your farm. Hang in there Trixie!

  2. Praying for a smooth safe delivery and healthy momma and babies! And your sanity of course!

  3. I hope Trixie recuperated well from that delivery. Where are her kids now? I hope she and her babies are okay. Kudos to you for taking good care of those hens and goats. Anyways, have a great day at the farm!
