Willow comes up trumps

Well I am pleased to say that Willow did me proud today and as I suspected she went into labour this morning, in time for mum and dad to see her give birth.

Her waters broke at 11.14 and by 11.29 the baby was out which was great to see, as Willow's labour with Chiquita was in excess of 2 hours. As you can see Chiquita and most of the herd were watching proceedings. As soon as the baby was born Chiquita went off in a bit of a sulk!
Willow has produced another lovely little girl for us who we have named Layla, meaning dark beauty and she certainly is. She weighed a healthy 7.4kg which is much more than Willow's previous cria.

I think it has been a bit hot for the new baby today as she's not been very active until this evening.
