Today, she was in full labour when I went to work. Michele and I were beside ourselves with excitement, to see the little cria that we had been waiting so eagerly for.
Michele called me around 10 to say that the cria had been stillborn.
It's impossible to believe. Dr. Sherry says it can happen - the mom gets jostled and the placenta detaches. I worry that I'm doing something wrong. It's just been the worst spring ever for birthing.
The cria was a female. Shauna-Marie stayed with her all day, and at night we buried her beside Buckwheat.
Shauna-Marie and Daisy keep crying for her. It's just so sad.
