Last night Phoebe’s girth was 28″. With the help of Tom at C-Myste, I installed a camera over the whelping pool. That will let me check in on Phoebe, and soon on Phoebe and children, from my office. It’s time to put up “Private Property — Trespassers Will Be Crated” signs to keep Chase and Inca out of Phoebe’s area — which is not easy. They are not dissuaded. The camera installation took longer than I expected (that’s one of Murphy’s laws), so the whelping pen curtain was not put together yesterday. I hope to get it cut and sewn tonight.
Phoebe will be x-rayed again tomorrow and we’ll see how many head/spine combinations we can identify. We’re about a week away from welcoming the Chebes into the world. Continue the mantra . . .
