Flaked out

The herd took full advantage of the lunchtime sunshine and this is the scene that greeting me when I took Heidi her midday bottle. I couldn't fit them all in but the whole herd was stretched out.
Our latest arrival is settling into the outside world nicely. Oonagh is certainly following the family tradition and proving to be a fantastic mum. She has also been blessed with her mothers fantastic milking abilities. Oonagh has bags of milk and her adorable little baby has gained weight in the first twenty four hours which isn't very often the case.
We have named her Kealani, which is Hawaiian and pronounced Keh-a-lah-nee. It means spiritual & white heaven.
The weather has turned this evening so it was back on with the coat, and just in time before the rain arrived. The forecast isn't good for tomorrow so it looks like she might have to keep her coat on for the next couple of days.
