This year we're 0 for 3. THe first was understandable....we weren't even sure she was bred. The next, we knew she was getting ready and were checking every 30-60 minutes staying out there however long to watch progress but we still missed it. And this was in the afternoon. THen this last girl. We checked her last at 2 a.m. She was stretched out sleeping. Decided she wasn't going to go that night and set the alarm for 6. I was up at 4:45 and thought about running out there but had left my clothes in the bedroom and didn't want to chance waking the baby up. I'm really kicking myself for doing that. The babies were buried deep in the hay. Dd saw one and ran her inside. Then went out with my oldest to watch for other births only to realize she was done and two other babies were down in the hay. So fortunate they weren't stepped on as there were two girls in the kidding area. But I think that hay is what saved them. Really thinking about getting one of those surveillance cameras as sleeping in the barn is not an option here. How do you all handle it?
