Weekend arrivals

We had another busy weekend with visitors, new cria and a local show.  Whilst doing a couple of matings on Saturday morning I noticed that Lucia (the very big grey girl) was looking like she was going to give birth.  Having never seen this baby move I was slightly concerned about this one!

Anyone who follows our tweets will have enjoyed a shot by shot account of the birth, which was text book, however what arrived was a first for Barnacre, like Barbara we have our first fancy.  Having so many grey girls it is surprising really it hasn't happened before; but meet Soxxx.

He is tiny despite Lucia being huge and at 340 days he was a tiny 5.23kg, which is the smallest baby of the year so far, en smaller than our 304 day prem baby.  I couldn't resist this little and large photo opportunity, here with Invisible Sam.

Our second arrival of the day sneaked out whilst we went in for lunch, Veruschka had a lovely whit boy who looks very big in comparison.  He was very early for her, she is usually a well cooked baby sort of girl with an average of 358, but this little man arrived at 329! 

As you an see he's a sturdy chap weighing in at 7.13kg.

Then on Sunday whilst we were at a vintage car rally in Corbridge with the alpacas and our knitwear Cara decided to give birth.  Another boy, but a very nice boy from Gianmarco's Masterpiece, also born at 329 days.  I only hae photo's of him on my phone so will have to get out with the camera when it stops raining!
