Legend of Spartacus gets a special treat

Thank you to all those very kind people who left comments, sent messages and called to congratulate Legend on his Supreme Champion win. I got very excited when I saw 10, yes 10, comments on my last blog post.

As a special treat for the superstar he got so see a very special lady, Little Miss Irraquoy this evening. You may remember she gave birth just over two weeks ago now to our best cria of the year to date, Barnacre Sandstorm who is thriving and already eating hard feed.

LMI is a bit of a minx and has given us the run around with previous mating so hopefully this year will be different. Although saying that she did play rather hard to get with Legend spitting initially and then giving the old screech during the mating. She only allowed him to work for 6 minutes before throwing him off, he got back on but she soon threw him off again. Hopefully she had long enough, but time will tell.

Gabby was sat the other side of the pen so she obviously didn't take on her first mating so I will get Guinea back on the job tomorrow which will please him. He was far from happy when I took Legend and Gianmarco off this evening; he obviously knew what was going to occur.
