Since it's been so long since i've had one born in my yard, I just want to pick everyones brain a little.
If you don't mind.
First off, yesterday morning I woke up to find a Burro with a big full bag of milk. (one side a little bigger than the other) No other signs of anything. No wax, nothing. Her bags though have been going from full, down to half, then smaller then bigger every other day. They don't stay the same. And I know that's normal. But yesterday they were bigger than ever.
Then we had her out in the big pen. She usually goes out ther and suns herself and mosys around for hours on end. Well, yesterday she was out there for about an hour and wanted back in her pen. She was standing outside her pen and had diarhea. I mean really bad. Started out mushy, then about 30 seconds later she did it again and it was even more mush, then about 2 minutes later she did it again only it was projectile and it came out like green water. So bad after it projectiled it ran completely down her back legs.
(sorry for the graphics)
So I figured since she wanted in so bad, I put her back. She stood under her tree for over 2 hrs. and didn't move. Only thing she moved was her back legs. Kept switching the weight on her legs over and over and over. Like every couple of minutes she switched legs.
No more diarhea for the rest of the day.
Then she ate dinner just fine.

This morning, I went in to clean poo, and she wouldn't come near me. She actually turned her butt on me and slowly backed up to wherever I was. One time she even gave me a small warning kick. Then she came over and took a carrot from me just fine. She was acting like everything was scaring her. She started to go inside for breakfast, looked at the ground and backed up like her food was even scaring her.

She's just acting strange. (no more runs all night long though) So, do you think her body is cleaning itself out getting ready, and she's just getting ansy or what?

Sorry such a long message. I'm going bonkers.
