Here is a picture of a very pregnant cow that I found online at this nifty site:

She’s pretty huge! The calf should be mostly represented by the bulge on her right side, and the left is her full rumen, displaced, of course, by the calf. Now here’s a picture of Rosemary I took this morning. Please bear in mind that her rumen is not full, as I had just given her her morning hay, which she was just beginning to eat:

What do you think?! I’m really starting to think she’s not bred. Though I have to remember the bull was a miniature, so maybe the calf is pretty small. Also, it’s her first calf, and if she’s anything like humans, she won’t show as much as if it was her second or third. I just don’t know….
