Luckily All Are Well

It wasn't the smoothest of births today. This is Rita's 8th cria and she has delivered all her cria with no issues. We noticed that Rita was in labour at 10 this morning. By 1:00 her labour hadn't progressed so we called the vet. The vet came and found that instead of coming head and front feet first the crias head was facing backwards (it's neck was turn back) and its front feet were going backwards. It took the vet 20 minutes to reposition the cria into a position that he could get it out, and he was doubtful that it would survive. As soon as the cria was out it look a deep breath and so did we - it survived!
