It's a girl

Well she did it, Gabby gave birth this morning to a healthy little girl looking very similar to her full sister from last year lady Godiva.  This was a remarkably fast delivery, it was two minutes from pushing the nose out the her going splat on the ground.  It took more effort for Gabby to pass the placenta.

Not yet dry here she is, does anyone recognise that smile?!



As you can see Imala was close on hand to keep guard on the new born baby.  Gabby and Imala are inseparable and Imala always plays body guard until she births herself. She is due in a couple of weeks time.
The new baby was quite small compared to some of our other births this year weighing in at a healthy 7.58kg.
