It's a (solid white) girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oonagh did it! Our first ever Barnacre baby became a mum today and Oonagh gave birth to a lovely little girl fathered by Wellground's Supreme Champion stud Samson. She arrived in text book style just before 10am this morning weighing in at 7.52kg.

She was lifting her head almost immediately after hitting the ground and was soon up and feeding. In fact she is the first cria I've had that has managed to get up from kushed to standing on their first attempt. She even found the milk bar but didn't manage to stay still enough to suckle - amazing don't you think.
Oonagh has taken to motherhood fantastically, mind you with Blossom as her mum I would have expected nothing less. Your mum would have been proud of you Oonagh, a little girl too so keeping up the family tradition.
More on the new arrival tomorrow I really need to go to bed before I fall asleep over the keyboard.
