I keep second guessing myself on this gilt and finally came to a breaking point tonight and took a picture of her vulva in hopes some of the more experienced breeders might be willing to weigh in. :teehee: I know for sure this gilt was bred. Earlier in the pregnancy she was carrying very, very much out to the sides -- usually one side or the other -- and I both saw and felt fetal movement. And then it disappeared. I *think* she just dropped and started carrying it looser/more downward, but I still worry that she aborted. It had been extremely hot here so I suppose that's a possibility. (Note: Yes, she has always had access to both shade and a wallow.) I've looked at her vulva so much I don't think I'd see changes in it if they jumped up and bit me. Obviously every gilt's vulva will look a bit different than any other's, but if your experienced eyes had to call this one would you say bred... or not? She was co-housed with the boar this spring and I estimate her due date to be around Sept. 4th. if that's of any help.
