    If it's spots, you might have a couple more weeks. If it's a long, thick string, I'd say today's the day.

    Check her ligaments. There should be a sink'in just above and on either side of her tail. You can actually almost pinch your fingers around the bone and touch them together when the ligaments are almost gone and the tail should be droopy. Check out Fiascofarm site.

    it is long and stingy, and she has slowed way down, she is resting the side of her head against the barn and letting out little bleaps. i have taken the day off just in case.. i've been waiting for this day for a long time.. i hope today is the day!!
    thanks,
