on Miss Abigail to have her calf!
She isn’t due until November 16th, but … we are on active watch now. Her belly is hard as a basketball, pumped a little too full of air. I check her before I go to bed … and again during the night. Last night, I tried to leave a light on in the barn and use the zoom lens on my camera to check her from my bedroom window. But, Miss Abigail chose to rest in a spot in the barn where I couldn’t see her. Sigh. After going outside, I have trouble getting back to sleep. When the boys were little and had trouble returning to sleep, I used to tell them to think happy-thoughts until they drifted back to sleep. The night before, I laid there thinking of what goodies I could try dipping in melted almond bark for Christmas candy. I think I gained five pounds, just thinking about it. Maybe pig-farmer will check her when he returns home from work-travels tomorrow night.
Stay tuned and wait with me, my friends?
