Gaussian's big gain

Saturday morning means weigh day for Gaussian, and seeing as his milk intake has increased slightly this week I was hoping for a decent gain. What a good boy he is, 17.5kg (38.5lbs), not only is he gaining weight he is much more playful, I'm not sure if that is because the weather has improved or he is generally feeling better.

Talking of good weather just check these out, from the top we have Gabby, Aria, Little Miss Irraquoy and Ursula catching a few rays.
The girls have been sunning themselves again this afternoon, Molly has been particularly keen to stretch out. Her shape has completely changed today and she is now at 331 days gestation so I don't think it will be long before her cria arrives.
To be honest I'm amazed that we haven't sold her, she is a fantastic girl with a very dense fleece. She has been mated to the outstanding Accoyo Remarque whose progeny did so well at the recent Futurity. Molly, (soon to be two) is for sale either on her own at £4,550 (+VAT) or as part of a package at discounted rates.
