Lets play

Sienna is taking her parental duties very seriously, in fact I think her baby is going to give her a heart attack before too much longer.  She is such a lively little thing, Sienna is constantly chasing after her trying to be all protective.  If she'd not charging round she's feeding!

She wants to play with Neelie but Sienna keeps trying to keep her by her side, I think she's fighting a loosing battle.  Don't the two of them look sweet together.

I said last night I would explain Neelie's name.  Well you will recall that she was born shortly after my nanna died and the day before her funeral.  I thought it would be rather nice to have some connection, nanna's name was Eileen so Neelie is Eleen spelt backwards and before she was strong enough on her legs she walked on her knees. 

Now we have to agree on a name for Sienna and Golden Guinea's baby (you were right Mark) posing here in the sun.

There are few things as lovely to watch than a proud hembra nursing her cria :-)
