Watching a 10 month pregnant female laying down in the barn the other night, I watched what I believe was her cria hiccuping, anyone else ever seen that? The female seemed surprised when it first happened, but with each hiccup, she would startle less and less, seemed very comfortable and continued chewing her cud..
After about 10 minutes of hiccups at about 20-30 second intervals, they stopped.

Thought it was interesting to see that happen,
