3/15 Morning Report
April is doing what she does best, and waiting, and we are thankful!
April and Oliver are doing well in their heated barn, while 2-3' of snow encapsulate the property. All other stock is sheltered in place and comfortable.
April's condition remains the same as days prior, for which we are thankful.
3/14 Evening Update
We remain in a holding pattern. No significant change from this morning or last night, though all signs are still present - suggesting we are at the end of the pregnancy. Slight discharge, swelling, pulsing, etc. Keepers reported that baby is very active this evening. April remains in STELLAr (did you get that snowstorm joke) condition.
We remain under the attack of Snowstorm Stella. All animals are safe and comfortable, keepers remain on site this evening to continue to ensure proper conditions.
Procedures are in place to get the necessary individuals to the site should April begin to birth.
To our local friends; stay safe, stay warm, and rest up for the dig out!
Enjoying your evening, or day, and we will keep you posted with any developments.

3/14/2017 Morning Update
April and Oliver remain inside during our horrendous cold spell.
April continues to be in great condition. Today, we have posted the shot from underneath, to show you our keeper's perspective. Wax caps are present and udder appears to possibly have more content - another few days of comparative photo will confirm changes.
Giraffes do not "bag out" like cows, goats, pigs, or other animals in lactation. It is a very subtle fill and development.
Significant baby/belly movement this early morning (3-4am) and again around 7 am.
We return to Superchats this evening on our YouTube Page from 8-9 PM
With Keepers and Staff!
Factoid of the day:
Wax caps are what develops on the teats of the udder to keep colostrum in the udder, to ensure it is their for baby's first nursing. Colostrum is a form of milk that is produced and holds the many antibodies and other essentials to allow any new baby to thrive.
Caps are shed just prior or during delivery, or can be removed by the suckle of the baby.
