Girls, girls, girls

The sun has been shining here today which encouraged Mary to give birth.  She obviously  listened to me yesterday before we left for the show and hung on until today.

Mary is an experienced mum and gave birth it true text book style.  I did think at breakfast something was likely to happen today as she just wasn't quite herself.  I couldn't believe it when I went over to check all was well with the baby; another girl!

He she is just enjoying her first drink.  My camera has a large zoom I wasn't that close as I don't like to interfere unless I have too.
She is a lovely solid black girl from Loki so he has done us proud, we are very pleased with his first two progeny.

She weighed 8.99kg which again is bigger than Mary has had in the past, Mary was having to push hard to get this one out so I'm glad she didn't hang on.
It's she a sweetie, we now have another name to agree on as I was sure she would be a boy!
