My little little Trixie's udder has been developed for about 5 weeks now. Yesterday I tested the PH in her milk and it was about 7.5, I wanted to test again tonight, but cant get a drop out.... Is this normal?

Yay! She's getting closer!!!!
I'm pretty sure Holly had that happen with Sally when she was getting closer then they got some again and it tested lower.
Yep, it was ALWAYS hard to get milk out of her. When the PH started to lower, it went down about a tenth per day. It stayed at 6.0 for two days before Sterling was born.

We tested our neighbor's mare who supposedly wasn't due til June/July. It was 7.4. Two weeks later, my neighbor went on a trip, and the baby was born while he was gone! These test strips seem pretty accurate.

No...
Her PH has been 6.8 in the AM and 7.2 in the PM...
Lots of laying down last night, but she seemed content, not at all restless or uncomfortable. Today she is has a definate attitude!
