A new little man

As I predicted yesterday Iolani, one of our livery girls gave birth this morning to a lovely little white boy.  She fired him out in no time and as for the placenta, I've never seen one shoot out so fast!

This little boy was soon up on his feet.....
and within no time he'd found the milk bar.  Iolani is a fantastic mum and very protective of her son, the other cria aren't allowed anywhere near when its feed time.

Isn't he gorgeous.

Our boys are spending most of their time standing guard at the fence at the minute.  Legend has control of about 90% of the channel fence whilst everyone else has to share the rest.  If anyone dares to stray into Legend's territory when he nips for a call of nature our something they are soon given what for in no uncertain terms.  
Poor Niveous, one of Legends' sons seems to get chased by his dad for just looking in the general direction of the ladies.  Legend obviously thinks his son is going to take after him and only has one thing on his mind!

A good mum is a heartwarming thing to see (and a relief!) - how is your m:f ratio this year?

It's the same here with the boys. Since Black Sabbath has arrived St Patrick won't come in to feed, just in case the new boy pinches his girls when his back is turned!
