After looking in more detail she still looks swelled. So more pre calving.

I like to hear what the experts have to say. I would like to learn as well.

Not a prolapse. Just the tail of the placenta, which, if it still hanging out of her after this length of time, indicates a retained placenta and watch to make sure she doesn't get sick.

Home is where the HERD is, VA
The discharge looks like some retained placenta. The other area appears to be a swollen vulva from caving. Uterine prolapses tend to be farther out and have red "buttons" from where the placenta was attached. Also have a more "wet" appearance if they are fresh.
