This morning I was able to get a drop of milk from Gem finally! Maybe we're getting there. I was hoping the change in weather from super hot 80 degrees to cold 40 degrees with rain would kickstart her labor, but not yet.

I've been cleaning out the hay shed to make a foaling stall. Alex, the greyhound with the broken leg, has decided that the hay shed is his absolute favorite place. He LOVES the big pile of hay I've raked up and lies flat out right in the middle of it. He didn't want to come in this morning, he just wanted to lie in the hay shed! I'm going to keep Gem in it at night, I think, and start checking on her several times a night. I don't think Alex is going to approve...
